Just because it has been a while

It's been a couple of weeks now. Nothing of any real interest worth writing about from my perspective. I did hear from the agent I've been really excited about. She suggested I go through my MS and do some, "ruthless cutting." A fair judgment since I have a very bad habit of being an adverb junky. And in the words of the famous Stephen King: The road to hell is paved with adverbs. So the past couple of weeks have been spent, cutting, smoothing and retying my MS. After I'm finished, I'll resubmit it to the the agent who is so graciously giving me a chance to right my wrongs! I have to say, she is the shiz!

Yeah, sometimes the only news to share is that there's no news... Better than bad news though! And you're getting work done! Yay!

Proud of you, Hope! I've decided to go back and utterly redo several places in my own MS before I even begin to think about treading this path.

Work is always a good thing, Cassandra! I have to remind myself that 30 minutes, as little as it is, is still 30 minutes more than I did the day before!

Thanks, Heather! It's still a huge work in progress but it's been such a great adventure!
