The Doubting Writer Finds His Voice

Solstice (and not much else)

Happy Solstice! At least in my particular corner of the world, the sun reaches its zenith, i.e., its greatest distance from the equator, today at 6:34 p.m. In terms of daylight, we’ll have 15 hours, 19 minutes, 33 seconds of it today. Woohoo!

I am once again back on submission. My manuscript is in Carrie’s hands, we’ve crafted a pitch letter (or whatever it is that agent’s call it; it’s an awful lot like a query letter to me), and Carrie’s got her list of publishers together. I can now fantasize about contracts, advances, cover reveals, launch parties and all that.

Wow, that was fun. Now, it’s time to really settle in on The Next One.

That’s all for me for today; how’s things with you all?

    -Sheena-kay–Junowrimo? I guess Nano's becoming a year-round thing. Best of luck with your project!
    -Jemi–Thanks!

  2. This is a tough time of year for me. I have trouble sleeping when it's light. I'm kind of relieved the days will begin getting shorter now.
