Today the publishing industry is officially back in business! Some publishers and agencies have been doing some work for the last few weeks, but today all of publishing is back to moving full speed ahead. Which is awesome for people like me who are waiting for things. Plus it makes the online world more interesting. Bloggers will start blogging again, message boards will resume normal activities, e-mailing will now commence!:)
At least until summer when everything will slow down to about three-quarters speed again.
And since this is now my job, I guess I have to get to work too. (Actually, that's nto entirely true. I got about 15,000 words written over the holiday break.) I am about 30,000 words into my sequel and my goal is to write at least 1,000 words a day unless I am actively working on edits for book one.
It's a little weird that I suddenly have a job. I never intended to have a career; I've always wanted to be a stay-at-home-mom . . . and I still am, technically. But now I have a job too. Bizarre.
So what are you doing now that publishing is back in full swing? Sending out queries? Finishing that novel? Are you working on edits too?
