So Much To Do, So Little Time

And practically no writing time! I say practically because I have been jotting down lines and thoughts here and there while I've been cleaning my classroom and attending staff development.

I want to celebrate my CP's good fortune with you. Two of her manuscripts finaled in the Shiela contest, 1 in first place and 1 in fifth. Yay! I've told you before remember this name. Jenna Stuart. Her historicals will be on shelves in no time.

For me, I got another agent rejection today and the only part about it that bothered me was the fact they didn't even seal the envelope closed. Obviously not the right agent for me. I just know my agent is out there waiting to fall in love with my characters as much as I have. We'll find each other one of these days!

Good luck with the agent search. I'm about to start mine in a week or two and am bracing myself for the inevitable rejection until I find the right one. It's all character building, right...?

Lexi said...

Yes, character building! I like that. Of course, it's also chocolate time everytime there's a rejection in the mail.

Bailey Stewart said...

There's an agent out there for both of you - just keep at it.

Chocolate is always good for rejection. *gg*

Bailey Stewart said...

Oh, and congratulations to Jenna!

Lexi said...

Thanks, Bailey! I'll pass your words on to Jenna.
