It’s been a bit of a freak weekend over here weather. Hot sunshine in October?! Very weird indeed. Just when I was ready for boots, I had to get out my crops again. Despite the warmth, I managed to have a productive weekend writing wise. In fact, I got my book ready to send out to agents. Eek.
This will be the second time I’ve tried to secure an agent in the hopes I can get a publishing deal. I’m nervous. On one hand, I feel a bit more confident as I have been through it once and I survived. I even got a couple of nibbles although no bites. Plus since then I have started this little blog and have done a lot more writing as well as putting a lot of my dreams “out there” and receiving a ton of support from you lovely people. However, it’s still a huge step to send out the emails and letters. To have someone critiquing my work. To have someone decide if my dreams will come true or not.
But I’m going to do it. Because if I don’t try I’ll never get there. I love my story. I’ve enjoyed writing it and I’m excited to see what the response will be. Am I hopeful? A little bit but mostly, I’m making sure I approach this with my head and not my heart. And I’m prepared for rejection. A great big ton of it
That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t accept some luck from the universe so here we go, finger’s crossed!
