Since my last post, a few loose ends have been tied up.
My query hook got another positive response. I didn’t win the contest, but two encouraging responses do outweigh the one luke-warm one. I think I’m on the right track with my query, but just lack the motivation to move full-speed ahead. In due time…
Patience is a trait that escapes me, so yesterday I registered for the manuscript writing community college class. The plan was to do it tomorrow, but my schedule cleared up enough so I did it last night. It’s been a while since I’ve done a college class, but some things never change: the text books are outrageously expensive!
Finally, for my last bit of news: I’m taking a cue from two bloggers that I read, and have decided to try my hand at a weekly serial story entry. Poetry and novels are all I’ve written before, so a short story is foreign to me. Posting segments of a story that I haven’t already completed and edited makes me a little uneasy because it won’t be polished nice and pretty. I also run the risk of ending up with a novella if I’m longwinded, as I tend to be 🙂
So, my Saturday Morning Serial (inspired by Lua and JPCabit) will begin on Saturday. Lua runs her story on Monday and JPCabit has Tuesday covered. If you’ve got time for a weekend story, I hope you’ll stop by.
