I got seriously off-kilter some time after the holidays (Christmas, not President's Day), allowing the regularly scheduled maintenance of my aging body (exercise, daily intake of vitamins, Dark Green Leafy Vegetable and High Fiber Heart Healthy V-8 juice) to slide, as well as putting off, faking out, and generally evading my responsibility to write, rewrite, think about/take notes on next project.
So I am trying to get back on track from the siding where I have sat, immobile, boiler unstoked, for lo these past few months.
I do this as I am still awaiting the arrival of revision suggestions from the nice agent lady. I'm eager to get started but want to revise what she wants me to revise, not what I think she wants me to revise, ya know? My last partial submission just got form-dissed. A few February queries saw their rejections flitter in over the past couple of days. The deal I have with the nice agent lady is that I won't send out any new queries while we're working together, though I can respond to outstanding queries, sending out partials, fulls, or even accepting offers of representation (I should be so lucky). Since my big batch of January queries remains mostly unanswered, this doesn't seem likely to happen.
So... I'm going to try to get back on schedule which means, unfortunately, I now have to close up so I can go down to the basement, get on the stationary bike, and pedal for an hour.
