So, I re-sent my proposal to my writing coach (it apparently got lost the first time round), and asked him if he’d had a chance to get in touch with the agent in Sacramento that he thought might be a good fit. He responded by sending emails off to *three* agents, one of whom has already responded and wants to see my proposal!!
I’m saying my prayers at the moment. Very fast because I’m excited. Actually, I’m running around going “Ohmigod ohmigod ohmigod what am I going to do now??” and jumping up and down a bit. Not that I’m nervous, you understand. It’s just that…the horse is FINALLY in the starting gate, and I FINALLY have a chance to move on from simply writing in a vacuum to….publishing?
And I finally have a chance to start picking up rejections. I think that’s part of what’s got me worried, too.
But I’ve decided not to overanalyze it, and simply to enjoy the moment.
The horse is out of the starting gate, and soon we’ll find out if it’s any good. The proposal goes out as soon as I understand what format it goes into, and where I send it.
