Hello everyone! It has been a while since I have posted. I only came to realize this a few days ago. And I asked myself, "Why has it been over a month since you posted"? And I thought about what I have been up to these last six weeks, and thought, "Well it isn't for lack of effort!"
So this is what I have been up to. First off, I started a very intensive screenwriting program. This program has been super intense and I have been working daily on the script. It has been hard for me especially in the last 3 weeks because we have been working on the one thing I dread most. Outlining. I hate outlining. I am a discovery writer. I have an idea, I write it down with the main points, and then I go. But in this class I am outlining every scene of my script.
Second, I wrote a query letter for agents. It has gone through a ton of revisions since I started it back in November. And only yesterday I finished it to where I think it is good. Not great, but good. So I have been submitting my queries for the last six weeks.
Third, well, let's be honest, it was the holidays. My kids had a break from homeschooling for 3 weeks, so I took advantage of that down time for the first time in my life. I actually did nothing for two whole weeks but play WoW. The other week was the week before Christmas and I worked frantically to finish Christmas presents. Including 12 pairs of PJ pants, a dress, a skirt, a bag, an apron and goodies.
Lastly, I have been so focused on getting the query done, synopsis for Dead Awakenings done. Working on a new idea I have for a book series, and fighting my carpal tunnel, that I just plain forgot.
But, I'm back and ready to move forward.
Happy New Year!
