Bits & Pieces

Just some random bits of news here…

  • I just sneezed and bit the inside of my cheek. I hate that.
  • In the “news of awesomeness” front, though, I just ordered these socks (in pink and grey) and these arm warmers (in purple) from Sock Dreams. I am very, very, VERY excited about this. Sock Dreams = awesome.
  • I’m currently…kind of…working on two books at once. It’s a little worrisome, and I feel like I’m being torn in half, but it’s fun nonetheless.
  • I have four queries out in the void. I’m planning to send out three more today. I’m getting either brave or crazy. Maybe both.
  • Yes, since I sent out five queries last week, that means I got a reply on one. Yes, it was a rejection. It was both painful and liberating. Once that first one for a particular novel is out of the way, the tension level goes down a bit. Not all the way, mind you–never, never all the way–but a bit. This will be the last time, as I query this novel, that I mention rejections on this blog. I like to have a rejection-free space, and this is it. Plus it always feels kind of like picking at a newly formed scab. I need to leave it be and move on.
  • I have nothing else to say.

That’s all the news that’s fit to blog. I’m going to go be excited about my over-the-knee socks and arm warmers, now.

  1. Wow; so much to offer congrats on! (Well, except the bitten cheek . . . )
    Congrats on the socks! Socks are always necessary, but luxury socks are a plus!

    Congrats on being a two-book writer! When you get sick of one, you’ll find that you have fresh eyes for the other.

    Congrats on having 4 queries out there! Try not too look at your email/mailbox too often.

    Congrats on the rejection! The first one’s the hardest.

    Did I send enough positive vibes your way?
