Haven't blogged in a week....so sorry! Real life has been nuts, writing life has been tunnel visioned, and basically I evidently don't multi-task well.
I've found that I either hit up AW message boards or blog, but rarely do both. For some reason, the two don't mix. And lately I've really been hitting the AW boards, working on improving my query letter and synopsis, and critting others. And going through my first novel again, just to see if it can get better.
I learned last year about December through mid-Jan pretty much being a wash on submissions because agents are wrapping up for the year, so I'm focusing on getting submissions out there before they close up shop.
And last year I told myself I'd do NaNoWriMo this year, but with refocusing on the old novel and still dedicated to the new one, I just couldn't see spreading myself that thin starting a third right now. And I have to say to all who ARE doing it...Kudos to you! November is a crazy time of year for most people with the holidays coming...at least for me it's insane without writing even entering the picture. My hat is off to those who can do it!!
I know this is a bunch of rambling blabber, but guilt over not blogging does that to me! Now I need to get back to work for the people that pay me, because unfortunately my bank account requires it.
