It’s submitted!

I pulled the trigger on my submission to the Nelson Literary Agency.  Now begins the waiting.  And honestly, I don’t mind.  There’s something liberating about it being out your hands.  Back to the writing the fun stuff!

I also have a horror lesson I’m presenting to the Nebraska Writers Workshop on Wednesday.  I won’t be using a white board this time, but I think it’ll be well-received.

Editing. So much Editing

I spent a great deal of time editing the first 30 pages of Repenter in advance of sending them to the Nelson Literary Agency.  I made use of family and friends as proof readers.  The pages are about where I need them.  I think they pop.  Let’s hope our good friends in Denver agree.

Pitch Session was a success!

I was invited to submit a query letter and the first 30 pages of Repenter!  Awesome news!  I also learned some invaluable lessons on pitching: Always, always have causality reasoned all the way through when presenting it.  And have a very firm grasp on what compels your main character.  Anita Mumm was very gracious in asking probing questions to arrive at the answers these important pieces of story elements.  So to reiterate: The foot is officially in the door true believers!
