Luck for Hire
Added 40,867 words to the manuscript. Finished a zero draft and have done 1.5-ish revision passes. Reading through on this second revision, I’m liking the book. I think it’s coming along pretty well. I just don’t want anything to do with it for a while. As I mentioned in my RoW80 update, I’m switching projects for a while. Eric will be doing a read-through along with some revision and rewriting.
Sent query letters/submission packages to 23 agents. Heard back from eight of them. Nothing beyond form letters, so I will just keep on keeping on. I’ve been mostly successful at getting two queries out every Tuesday, averaging eight per month.
Pas de Chat
The novel will finish posting on May 22nd. I still haven’t quite decided what I’m going to do with it after that.
- "Evidence" was posted at 52|250.
- Posted "Orange Box" at Fictionaut.
- Subbed a couple of older pieces.
Not much done other than Luck for Hire. Not a bad thing.
While I’ve been meaning to get back to writing flash fiction, that’s not where my energy or attention lies. So, I’m not going to worry about it much. I signed up for a contest a while back through Shock Totem and then promptly lost track of time and didn’t get anything written for it. I’ll keep track of 52|250 prompts and whatever comes next for them, and if lightning strikes my brain, so be it.
Otherwise, RoW80, Blogging A to Z, Readathon, and league finals are all on my April activity schedule.
