Another Step Closer

It's getting real, y'all. I'm one step closer to sending The Novel out into the world.

I finished Draft 4 of the manuscript last weekend. (So, of course, I woke up every morning this past week with an idea of how to rewrite a sentence here or add another detail there. A writer's job is never really done.)

I spent my writing time this week researching literary agents and compiling a spreadsheet of agents to query. I even color-coded it. Ain't it purty?


I researched online classes about query writing and found one to try. The course starts at the end of July and lasts two weeks. So, allowing appropriate time to panic, I expect I'll be sending out my first query some time in August. Happy birthday to me?
