We all like to read each other's updates on any progress with our writing. I'm no exception. Who doesn't want to know if someone else has heard back from a submission or not? Or if an agent gave a personal reply whether it be a rejection or not. Anything. Something.
And after we get it, then we wonder about our own work. Should we send there as well? Should we be contacting that agent about a submission? What about that full? Should we let it drop?
If you've read much of my blog, you know I don't hold much back. The more we share information, the more informed we become to make good choices.
So here's my update:
In August, a publisher asked for a full of my second book--a romance. I sent it in and I am still waiting. I've heard from a source that their editors have changed abit in the past few months. I also know it can take time. But what is my next step and when?
In September, I sent a full request to an agent who asked that I give him three months. Yeah, I've been counting, too.
In the meantime, I started on my next book and have it a little more than halfway done. Everything I've read and heard is to not sit around and wait, but to keep writing because usually the next one gets better. I have to agree.
Finally, after I got my nerve up to submit to another agent, I never got one of those automated responses back saying they got it. Not in my spam. No place. Soooo, I decided to resubmit but when I went to the original email and changed the date --it disappeared. That's right. Not in my trash. Not in my spam or anyplace else.
So that's my update.
What's all this mean?
That I want you to spill as well:)
