Well, the agent who was reading my proposal returned (i.e. rejected) it yesterday, so we’re back at square one for the book. I’m meditating on what to do about it – I’ve run into a snag re getting access to some of the people I need to interview, so I’m not sure I’ll be able to complete the book as I’ve envisioned it. I’ll probably shelve the project until after the holidays.
I’m feeling kind of discouraged about the whole thing – not that I’ll never get it published (it’s a good idea), but that I won’t be able to write it to the standard I’d like to write it to. At times it seems like an easy task, other times it seems overwhelming. At the moment, it seems overwhelming.
So we’ll see what happens.
Meanwhile, there are caramels to make and scarves to weave, so no time to mope! I’m planning to do two batches of caramels this evening.
