    Decided to put the new novel I *just* started on hold in favor of whipping my space opera into shape for querying later this year. While it's finished, I'm going to do sweeps for filler words. Going to polish this one until is shines!

    Watched the show after it went on. It's been a while since I've had the time to watch one and the new format is AMAZING! Looking forward to watching more in 2019!

    It's been a long time coming, but I should be back a little more regularly in 2019. And I'm celebrating by submitting something I've been working on since 2016 to Pop-Ups! :P

    Work was dead this week, so I did a complete edit of my Cyberpunk WIP. Plot holes are all sealed up and language is smoothed out. Feeling pretty good about it...

    Happy New Year, everyone! I’m starting my 2019 out by taking a short reading break after a 50k+ word sprint to finish my cyberpunk MS by the end of 2018. Editing should start in a few months, then querying. This one is remarkably better than any other MS, so fingers crossed that 2019 is my...

    Thanks, all. She’s much better now, but we still are with the doctors trying to figure out exactly what she had (it was bad...she couldn’t move her arms for a week). Hope everyone else is doing well as we move into the holiday season!

    Back from a full week in the Canadian boonies. Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things, but being back at the office is going to be a definite change of pace!

    @[94:@Quillwitch] I counted on work to cover me up for the rest of the month. I haven’t even had time to think about it, I’ve been so busy!

    Long work days are killing my writing, but querying is actually going somewhere with my YA novel. Have one full request out and another from a small publishing imprint. Sooo...fingers crossed and stuff!

    I lost ALL of the contests in May, but managed to garner enough feedback to revise my first chapter AND query. They are both now MUCH BETTER!!! The highlight of the feedback? Someone fabricating a racial disparity to complain about in my novel. Good times!

    Just got asked to send additional materials for the contest, but they also want a single line pitch. I'm freaking out right now, but mostly because I suck at writing pitches!!!

    Will do! Won’t find out for a while, but I’m hoping the MS catches the eye of one of the mentors. Fingers crossed!

    Submitted my YA novel to a twitter contest this week. Hoping I get picked. If not, still going to forge ahead with queries. Perhaps I’ll submit to popups before I do?

    Submitted an older manuscript to a twitter contest. Didn’t get pocked, but got some personalized feedback that really helped the manuscript. Plan to edit it once more than try to query it (only did around 20 before putting it aside, so it still has some hope).

    A vanity press contacted me and tried to get me to send them some of my work to publish. The catch? I’d only get paid a commission by shilling the anthology to friends and family. I sent them a rejection letter. :P
