Querying

I've sent out some more query letters. Got two rejections so far, still waiting on the others. The waiting is the hard part, but if I can find an agent it's all worth it.

I start second-guessing my story after a while. Patience, patience..... Oh well, 9 days of school left and then we're out for summer. Woohoo!

Heading to the lake.....

Confidence

I am always second-guessing myself. I rethink my decisions, and embarassingly, my students are calling me on it. I'm re-reading my book to them, after the revisions. (We are writing stories from different genres in class, so this is tied in. Yes it's the end of the year, but we are still working! : )

I'm just going to go for it! Send out the queries, pray from some requests, and ultimately representation by an agent.

I know that there will be rejections, more revisions, and a lot of compromises along the way. I also know that this will probably be a long, drawn-out process, it has already become one. I'm ok with that.

Wish me luck!!!

Throughout the summer, I'll try to keep updating and let everyone know how it's going!
