In the Land of Proposal Hell

Long time no post, but then what else is new. I keep promising I will do a better job blogging but seem to loose track of time.

The good news is, I will be sending my proposal for romance #2 out to my agent this morning. The bad news is, she is tough and I'm nervous about her reading my idea. The other bad news is, I had to write a long synopsis! Me! A panster! Oh, the agony, the despair. How in the world was I supposed to tell an editor how my book will end when I don't know how they end until I write them.

I finally figured that's why they call it fiction and I reserve the artistic license to change the storyline as I see fit when I complete the book. It sounds good in theory anyway.

Some friends of mine are doing NaNoWriMo and I've been sorely tempted but the problem is, I'm right at the end of a paranormal (only lack 30 pages or so) and I want to get that out before year end (that darned accounting day job makes January hell), so I literally don't have 50k words I need to write at the moment. I'm kind of bummed because they'll all get to party and celebrate (or hide in shame) and I won't be part of it. Maybe I'll plan better for next year.

Weeeellll... Maybe you could see if you could do it anyway? We'd love to have more WriMos. :)

I also think I'll try to do my writing in a month anyway when I do the next one after this (which I have a couple ideas for) because if I let my stuff sit too long, it gets stale. I do better when I try and run through the first draft quickly without over thinking it. (Shoosh, Diana!) So, you could doo BIAM with me on the next one instead, too. :)

I signed up, darn it. Elly, you and Diana guilted me into it. (sigh) I'll see you again in December. (grins)
