50 Page review--Update

Heard from the agent last night who is doing that first 50 page review I won as a part of the 'Do the Right Thing for Nashville' auction a while back. She's graciously agreed to let me send the revised version with the tighter first chapter.

So that's a bit of good news.

The e-mail I received from her was actually quite sweet. If these are the sort of professionals I'll be dealing with during my 'race to publication' journey, I'm going to really enjoy this ride.

Spent a lot of time last night reading other writer's blogs. A lot of really talented people are out there...and I enjoyed what I read thoroughly. Some Young Adult stories, fantasy stories just a good night surfing and absorbing.

A few examples:


Today is an 'off' day--I'm taking the kids to an amusement park for a few hours this morning and to the Red Sox game tonight. A good weekend is planned, with professional photos tomorrow, tennis and hopefully a 'Toy Story 3' viewing.

Not sure how much writing I'll do, but I'm sure stories will be on my mind while I play with the kids. There is nothing like hanging around with my children to get the creative process kicked into high gear!

RB, how sweet of you to mention my blog! That's so cool about the agent your working with! A 50 page review is so valuable!

I'm very blessed to have the relationship with my agent that I do. She is a great friend and I never feel like I'm bugging her--ever. At least she doesn't let it show! Ha, ha! Best of luck with EVERYTHING!

xoxo -- Hilary
