When I ask the question: Who's awesome?
The answer "me" comes to mind.
That's cause I feel super full of wonderfuls (yes, that is a cereal and no, you can't have any) because I totally rocked the house yesterday. In this past week, I've written 50 pages for The Changeling Hunt. Thirty of those pages were written yesterday and I'm just about 100% on where I want to go with the rest of it. Now I just need to get it on paper. This thrills me to giggles because there's a strong possibility that I'll finish The Changeling Hunt before vacation and I can start working on The-Yet-Unnamed-Steampunk-Novel that I started three months ago.
In other news, rejections for queries are coming in at a slow crawl, but that's okay cause the agent who IS going to represent me already has the full manuscript and is reading it right this minute. I'm expecting her call this evening. Don't you just love my affirmative attitude?
This week I completed Kristin Cashore's Graceling. Four and a half hearts out of five. And I picked up another of Sherilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter novels, Dark Side of the Moon. I enjoyed it and have no complaints about repetitive language this time. probably because it was much smaller than Acheron. Although, I was a pinch confused. Kenyon claims everything can be ready out of order, but I'm apparently a few Ah-Ha bulbs short of your average reader...or something...
I'm currently reading Danielle Trussoni's Angelology. Can we say excited? I love angel fiction, especially when it actually bothers to incorporate religion and doesn't just shove some random Nephilim in for love interest. Can we say "gag on current YA?" Okay, I admit I toss angels into nearly everything I write, but at least my stuff makes sense.
As exoected, I'm also finally finishing Rhonda Byrne's The Secret (which I'm integrating into my life). Please read the following:
I'm so happy and grateful now that I have a literary agent who loves everything I write. I'm very happy and grateful now that my book has gone to auction, sold for a healthy chunk of cash, and I've been signed for the next two books in the series. I'm super happy and grateful now that I'm published. I'm uber happy and grateful now that I'm a New York Times Bestseller and can afford to write full time. I absolutely adore and am grateful for my readers, my agent, my editor, my publisher, the world at large, and of course the very beneficent and colossally attentive universe.
I think that about sums it up.
I figure it's not all that much to ask since I already have nearly everything else I want. Being a successful writer is pretty much all I want out of life these days.
Oh yes, and I want the interlibrary loans to allow me to check out the audiobooks I want.
