Ok, so Mondays are notorious for not being super spiffy keen, but today hasn't been bad!
First off, I woke up this morning to find that I was one of the winners in C.E. Murphy's book give away! Nothing is better than finding out you get a free book from an author you truly enjoy.
Then, Saint Nathan Bransford started his First Page contest today. Yes, I submitted the first page of Project 2. I have to practice getting over butterflies somehow, yes? Start small, grasshoppah! I believe I'm comment 109 out of a rapidly growing list. I hope I can find time to read all the entries myself.
This weekend, I worked on my query letter. It isn't done. It's not even good, really. But it's WAY better than my original pathetic attempt. I posted it up at Absolute Write, and got some really great feedback and pointers on what direction I need to take next.
AND... (I know you don't have to stop for breath when typing, but it sure feels like it) I had a really good idea for an additional scene at the end of Project 2, which will not only bump word count, but offer some more insight into one particular character that my betas just can't seem to get enough of.
So, yes, I'm going to miss the January 31st deadline on having this whole book thing ready to go. But you know what? It isn't because I've been slacking.
