So remember how I was here in January and was all, "Look at me! Getting back on track! Onward and upward!"? Uh huh, well life happened and so I haven't actually gotten "back on track" with the blog yet, and it's been more about putting one foot in front of the other than onward and upward so far.
So I'm not going to say anything like that at all, you guys. I'll just say that life has been cra-zay and in order to get everything done that I need to do and write, blogging has fallen off a little. I'm still writing and working on books, that's a constant at Casa de Brandy but man, the beginning of 2012 has been an ass kicker.
I've reached that luscious, amazing time called spring break in this semester that I'm positive wants to kill me, and so here is an update:
I'm working on MISFITS revisions... the final revisions before I start sending it out to agents! I'm actually pretty excited about getting the process started, although I guess I always am until the first rejection roles in and then I'm all, "Why do I do this to myself? I'm such a masochist!" But it's cool.
I feel more prepared with this book than I did with my last. It feels like a more complete story and I'm really proud of it. I hope agents like it, but regardless, I'm happy that I wrote it.
I think what I've realized more than anything else this year so far is that I would write for free forever if I have to. I'm happy with sending my friends and betas versions of my books and talking to them about it. And really, that's probably a good head space to be in at the query stage, right?
So remind me that I said that in a month or so.
