This just in

I was in the middle of writing a completely different blog post for today, but then

I GOT MY FIRST REQUEST FOR A PARTIAL!!!!!!!!!

(Translation for non-writers: A literary agent asked to see a synopsis and the first 3 chapters of Twenty-Somewhere. This is a good thing. A very, very good thing.)

Andy’s reply to my ecstatic email:

SWEET

You are more successful at writing than fishing

Fortunately, that appears to be true.

Man, I feel like someone shot me full of adrenaline. Which would probably be fine if I hadn’t just downed a can of Pepsi too. Now I’m going to be jittery all afternoon…

Jittery and grinning like an idiot.

    And it’s okay to grin like an idiot. You got a request for a partial! I think that calls for grinning like an idiot for at least a week…. yeah, definitely a week! : D

  2. sick! you should probably preemptively retire, to celebrate. =D

  5. It’s a nice feeling, huh? :)

    Just imagine how you feel when they ask for a full! And hopefully you’ll NEVER experience the crushing disappointment of the follow-up “It’s good but I can’t market this” email. That part sucks donkey balls.

    Funny enough, I got a rejection from my query & sample pages that said basically that, but it made me feel good not bad. She said she genuinely liked my characters, and that I obviously had talent, she just didn’t think she could sell episodic women’s fiction.
