Phew! I'm still sparkling with the dusting of glitter showered on me from the interview last friday at Jon's. Thanks, everyone! And from the sugar rush that is Valentine's. Normally, I just get a tiny box of chocolates for each of my kids on Valentine's day, but this year, we graduated to a bigger box. Because Mom wanted More Chocolate. Yum. The fact that I went to bed nauseous does not detract from the experience. (But does tell you something about my self control...)
My favorite filling for Valentine chocolates is caramel. Although, to be perfectly honest, I prefer Lindt Truffles, but truffles are reserved for Christmas. To every season, you know. Turn, turn. There is a chocolate. So, returning to my Valentine's Day analogy: Friday I exposed my caramel during Jon's interview of me, by including my query. Funny that I would share so much personal information about myself, but that revealing my query makes me feel the most exposed.
So, tell me. What are you working on now? What story keeps you up at nights, writing, or keeps you refreshing your e-mail, waiting for a response from agents? Details, I want details! Why would I feel less uncomfortable if we're all exposed? Bad self control around chocolate, and bad logic around queries? Good stuff. But still, I'm going to ask; what's your filling?
And--my goals for the week: I'm not setting any. What?!
I'm chugging along on revisions, and just planning on getting much further along so that some time soon, I can send my filling to a caramel loving group of agents. What about you? What goals are you setting this week?
