I got myself some pen pals! So far I’ve written two letters (hand written) on the topics of the destruction of mankind, and the colonization of space. I’m expecting the first letters from two others, for a total of four pen pals! I’m excited.
Well, the hunt for an agent is… happening. I want to say going well, in that I’ve found several agents who I feel would really dig my book, AND who I’d like to work with. So yes, in that regard, it’s going well. As ever, the rejection letters are trickling in. I had my fastest one ever today; 24 minutes! It seems fast, but then, if it’s not right for someone, I’d rather know sooner rather than later. 🙂
I’ve been trying to get to know the agents I’m submitting to a little more before I contact them. For some, it’s a bit hard if they don’t have a big internet presence. They best ones so far have been agents with blogs, and that have done interviews. My favourite has been Eddie Schneider, who did this fantasic AMA on Reddit a while ago. That was really great to read, not just to get to know more about him as an agent!
Also happening on Reddit right now, is an AMA by author Michael J. Sullivan. I have great respect for him; everywhere he shows up in r/writing he imparts so much wisdom, so many useful tidbits. He answered a lengthy question of mine today! Thanks Michael.
On the non-writing front, The Walking Dead. Is. Fantastic. I haven’t cried that hard during a TV show in quite a while; this last episode, “Killer Within” had me bawling my eyes out. MAN. What excellent acting.
I participated in the Reddit Halloween exchange. My gifter sent me this:
Fun! I sent my match some interesting candy, including White Rabbits, a Double Decker bar, and a few other yummies. Oh, and a big fake spider. >:)
This years Reddit Secret Santa is live! Sure to be a record breaker.
…You know what else is delicious? Pizza. I’m making a meat lovers tonight, from scratch. Using sausage I made myself. I’m excited. And then tomorrow, a Hawaiian. Then the next day, Veggie Mediterranean. Gosh, pizza is awesome.
Pics to follow. 🙂
Cheers guys. Thanks for reading.
