Full On!

Yes, I'm back. I like this smiley because it looks like a rotating gold coin.

Hey, come on, don't be like that. You know I love you (when its convenient).

Non-Smoking Status:
Still at about a pack a week. Oh well. Baby comes home on April 7th (yay!). I'll quit a few days before he gets here. Don't want to be a bad influence.

Novel Status:
41,850 (it's going up a little bit as I change the exposition to image). I'm on page 83 of the final rewrite. That's past the 1/2 way mark.

And I better pick up the pace...

I just got a request for my first FULL. Yay!

And this from an agent who hasn't even read a partial. She decided to read the full after I sent my query and then we had a short e-mail discussion about my writing experience. Guess I passed the test, because she requested a full. To tell you the truth, I'm not surprised. I've never known anyone to do this before, or at least had the experience myself, but two nights ago I had this overwhelming feeling that she would. So on top of it all, I'm honing my psychic skills.

Agent Status? Well here's an update:

Since Nov 1 I have sent out 16 queries
7 have yet to respond (although 3 of those just went out in the last few weeks)
2 of the queries I sent out contained partials in them because that's the agency's policy.
Of the 16, 6 of them have requested partials, and 1 a full.
2 responded to my query with a no thank you.
I hear from others that's pretty good odds.

Now I'm off to spend a weekend in the White Forest. Our time was short, but alas, the muse calls.
