I think I've over-reached. My goals this week keep getting loftier.
1. Finish hard copy line edits on ENTIRE manuscript- I'm about half way done.
2. Rewrite query and prepare to send it to editor for comments on ways to improve it by next week.
five three crits (two done!)
"Where's the fire?" you ask.
I have my first pitch with an agent on May 15th at the Atlanta Writer's Conference! I hope to have my first 50 pages polished to a high sheen, my outline, my query, and be able to quickly share what my book is about. I will be posting once a week until these goals are met, on Tuesdays.
I could have gotten through another 50 pages of line edits yesterday, but I picked up a copy of 'The Mark' by M.R. Bunderson from my local LDS bookstore and read all afternoon. It was a very intriguing YA mystery/light romance/fantasy and is available on Amazon. I paid for this book out of pocket and have no relationship with the author. I just liked it.
Have a great week!
