Another month has come and gone. It’s been a fairly busy one for me, and even though I got nearly no new writing done, I did get a lot of polishing and editing work done on my novel.

So, some stats:

Query Rejections: 2
*Full Manuscript Request: 1
Still waiting to hear: 1 partial, 2 queries
Consumed double bacon cheeseburgers(with extra bacon): 6
Batches of homemade ice cream: 3
Death threats (made by me): 2
Death threats (for me): 5 and a half. The half is because one was lost in the mail, and the sender mysteriously died in the interim.
Cups of coffee consumed: How do you do the symbol for infinity with a keyboard?

*A note on the full manuscript request. This happened only two days ago. I received a phone call from the agency to request the manuscript.

Like Catherine J Gardner, I wasn’t completely happy with my letter. Some recent comments about my query in a contest seemed to verify that it wasn’t up to par. So when I received the call, I was relieved, happy, and above all else, surprised.

I’ll now enter manuscript purgatory, where I’ll wait for a response. There’s no telling how long it will take, so in the mean time, I’ll write, write, write!

Happy August everyone. Get ready for Halloween. It’s coming.
