Irons in the Fire

Last week, I blogged about how I'm starting (and hopefully, finishing!) a brand-new novel this summer. The brainstorming process is underway. But I've also got some other irons in the fire right now...

Currently, I'm still waiting to hear back from the agent who requested re-writes months ago ).
I'm editing the last novel I wrote, a thankfully-short, Christmas-themed novel. I want to edit it so I can fully move on to my new project.

Whew. That's a lot. Especially for a "summer off." But -- I love it. I just do. This doesn't feel like work to me (although it can be very challenging and taxing, especially all this agent stuff). I love being this productive, and remember vividly all the times I wasn't this productive, for whatever reason (busy with family, school, health issues, life in general, even being burned out). But, while I do feel creative and motivated, I'm going to enjoy it and seize every opportunity. Carpe diem!


  1. Wow that is a lot.

    Good luck with the end in sight of the re-write, and submissions. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. :)

  2. Thanks, Lindsay! All this waiting is HARD! But I guess that's partly why I've made myself so busy. It diverts my mind from the waiting, lol...

  3. You have a busy summer planned!

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the agent loves your revisions.

  4. Thank you, Deb! I'll keep y'all posted, however it turns out! :-)

  5. You are motivated to revise and try again...and that's a good thing. Good luck...I know you're working so hard to make this happen.
