It is quarterly check-in time on YA Highway Road Trip Wednesday and boy could I use one! Many of you have asked how the world of writing is going for me and thank you for all of your support. In the beginning of this year, I have to say that I would never have foreseen the forward motion of my writing career really take off from idle to, well…at least first gear.
My first manuscript is floating around the agent world. I have seen some great response and feedback. Nothing big to speak of thus far, but I realize more than anything that these things take time. And patience. Lots and lots of patience.
In the meantime, I am very excited to be writing my second full manuscript, currently titled THE TRUTH ABOUT THE BIRDS. I’m hoping to have a solid draft by year’s end (please hold me to that).
It has been a strange and crazy ride so far learning the ins and outs of the publishing world, but like any good student, I am taking it all in stride, reading a lot, writing, talking to people, making writer friends and immersing myself into this world I have always wanted to be a part of!
As the final quarter of the year rolls around, I wish for progress on manuscript #1 as well as completion and satisfaction in manuscript #2.
Thanks again to everyone for your love and support and I patiently await the day I have big news to share! Until then…
Good luck with querying! That’s so stressful. But yay for working on a new manuscript!
