Just a quick update.
My contact with the second agent has not taken place yet, I’m still waiting.
But I’m still hopeful that this will be a positive interaction once it comes.
I just wanted to remind you all that if you have not gone to Writer Groupie, to the podcast or to the YouTube channel, why don’t you do that today? I have so much information listed under the podcasts and in the YouTube channel videos that you might really find interesting especially if you’re a writer. The address for that is writergroupie.net and you will find all the connections there to the videos at YouTube and to the podcast. The podcast actually resides on that site so if you’re a podcast listener you’ll find those there.
As to what I’m doing now, I am currently still writing The Overlook, and I am currently editing my young adult fantasy that is in the hands of the agent. It’s a long journey from first draft to publication, you guys, so if you’re in the trenches with me just know you’re not alone, and that we’re gonna make it it’s just gonna take some time.
In my personal life I am still working every day, five days a week (although it’s only 5-hour days it is a job and retirement is calling me). I’m looking forward to a day when I no longer have to work, even though I enjoy my job, even though I like the people I work with, it’s just… you get tired sometimes. You just get tired, and you’re ready to quit. Guess it’s that way with writing, as well. Sometimes. You just get tired. So, if you’re feeling tired today, you’re not alone there, either.
But we are not quitters. Even though we’re tired, we’re not going to quit. I’m not going to quit, and you’re not going to quit. I refuse to let you quit. Heckfire, I refuse to let myself quit. So maybe we’re just feeling these dog days of summer a little bit more so than usual. Maybe these dog days of summer have gotten us down a little bit, but you know what? There’s always September. There’s always fall, cooler weather, and pumpkin spice to cheer us up again. Looking for a good book to read?
Who’s with me? Who’s ready for some cooler weather? And some cooler foods, and some cooler everything? If that’s you, leave me a comment down below.
Until next time…
