Well, it certainly has been a while since I wrote an editing update, hasn’t it? I checked, and my previous one was written all the way back in January! Don’t let that fool you into thinking I’ve not done any editing. You might have noticed I no longer have my writing progress meters up on the blog, mainly because it became a pain in the ass to keep track of all of them, because some were on hold, some were being written, and others were being edited.
Queried five literary agents for [TEE] yesterday. I’m hopeful, but I’m trying not to get too excited. Cautiously optimistic is the word, I guess.
So, I’ve decided to put the writing of [C] on a halt for now. I’ve been having a hard time writing on this novel, and my daily word counts are nothing to write home about.
I’ve spent most of my time editing my WIP’s, but I’ve also started writing a fourth novel [C]. I was actually plotting a campfire story [E] (I still don’t know whether it’s going to be a novel or a novella at this point), but I got stuck.

I’m hoping to get their feedback around March, though I’ve not given them a hard deadline. I still find it hard to set an actual deadline; they’re busy people, I’m not paying them for their hard work, and the draft is pretty big. Perhaps I’ll get better at that someday.
I haven’t posted an update in a while, because I haven’t really been querying for [TEE] for a while. I’ve mostly been researching agents (and procrastinating when I should’ve been researching agents). But I do have one positive story to tell. Continue reading
I usually don’t do New Year’s resolutions, but this year I have a couple.
My biggest resolution, and the hardest to see through, is to NOT buy any kind of media (books, movies, TV shows, music, games) until the end of March. It’s hard, because my natural inclination is to BUY ALL THE BOOKS, but so far, so good.
