It occured to me again today that I’ve been blogging for two years now. So, just for shits and giggles, I went back and looked at what I was doing on this day two years ago. Ironically, I had just submitted the full manuscript for Twice Upon A Roadtrip, my first sale. :boogie:
Hi-ho, manuscript, awaaaaaaay
The snap is good. The kick is away. Ballâ€™s in the air. Only time will tell if itâ€™s a field goal or a punt, but it feels really good to be off the freakinâ€™ bench again.
Until I remember something I wanted to change or needed to fix, and then Iâ€™ll feel ill. But for now Iâ€™m going to stop mixing my Lone Ranger and football metaphors and goâ€¦clean my bathroom or something.
Actually Iâ€™m going to call the husband and tell him a customer called in with a furnace problem, but I let the machine take it because I was trying to make sure I hadnâ€™t used the same word in the same paragraph too many times in a sex scene.
Iâ€™m sure theyâ€™ll understand. Despite the 20-below wind chill.
I say ironically because the other thing that occured to me again is that I actually have to submit a query letter to SSE and then…wait. I’ve gotten rather spoiled in that regard. I’ve reached a place where I have enough faith in my writing to believe a partial could probably get a request for a full, but a query letter? Blech.
If I’d known this “anniversary” was coming up, I’d have sent the letter today. Might have been serendipitous.
