DO This!

Really, I have got to get this editing done. I try to work on it daily and I am more than half way done, but man is it going slower than I would have liked!

I had a lot of editing to do in the beginning of the book but as I progress, so does more writing apparently. I want to join Writer's Digest and start the search for an agent, but I wont let myself until I have crossed this bridge of completion. Finding the agent is the fun part, although I am sure the submitting part isn't. I will find out soon though.

So, here's my mission for myself, if I choose to accept which I do! Twenty pages a day. Yes, you read that right. I will edit at least twenty pages a day which will have me finishing this book in one week. 'Why do you NEED to get it done?' You Ask? Let me share my reasoning;

In two months we will put our house on the market. I know, that about a month prior we will be busy with getting the house ready and once it's on the market we will be busy keeping it ready. And, once this whole selling and buying and moving process begins, it wont end for awhile. And it will keep me super busy.

That is why I have given myself a deadline. At the end of this month, all queries need to be submitted to various agents. Let's see if I can make that happen, shall we?

  1. I read this post now and laugh. :) Still haven't submitted to the agent I really want. I have learned a quick, hard lesson in writing. Patience. It takes time to prefect the query and everything else needed to find an agent. Time and patience.
