Yesterday was my self-imposed deadline forgetting To Call Home (Charlotte) written.  And I did it!  I'm typing up the last two chapters as we speak.  Yes, even though I haven't finished typing, it's still done to me.  Since I still write the old fashioned way, with pen and paper, the typing part is really more of a revision process.  I'm pretty happy with the way I ended it, and I'm ecstatic that I can start querying soon, and start focusing on my other writing projects!

My query letter has seriously shaped up from my first pathetic attempt, and I think I can send this one out and not be embarrassed at it haha.  I have to get my agent list together and prioritize it, personalize my queries whenever possible, etc.  I'm going on vacation in a few weeks, so I might wait until I get back to send my first query letter.  I'd hate to get a response on, say, the first day of my vacation, and not know about it for a week!  I also don't want to be obsessing over it too much when I'm supposed to be having fun.

But anyway..... done done done done done!  I'm doing a little dance in my head right now.  I'm so excited!


  1. CONGRATS!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!

  2. Way to go Jen! Writing THE END is the hardest part of getting the novel done!


Got something to say?
