Part One: Querying is hard.
Today, I came to the end of a Dr. Pepper 12 pack. Inside the box, was a printed code for a contest. 1 in 6 win, it said. I entered the code online and a message came up: Sorry, your code is not a winner.
Imagine that box flying across the room. Then, imagine me tearing it in half and stuffing the remains into the trash can.
I find that I take out my query frustrations on other things.
Part Two: There's nothing like a new story to take the mind off above mentioned frustrations.
I am currently in the midst of plotting out a new story. Here's the thing, it's very different from Midas. Very.
It's still YA, but it's also a post apocalyptic, magic realism story. I haven't written any thing yet, but I've scribbled out nearly a dozen pages of plot and character sketches in my Moleskine.
So, it's fun so far. I plan to start writing soon. Keep an eye out for a story updater on the right side bar.
