After receiving 36 rejection emails from various agencies, I finally received it. The letter requesting the full manuscript! Yahoo! Jump for joy! Of course, I do realize another rejection could be waiting for me on the other side of this, but I don't care. I'll keep going as long as I have something to write floating around in my head.
On that note, I've made good progress on my latest manuscript. Can't tell you exactly how many words I've got. I handwrite everything. The computer is too distracting. Word counts, for me, are distracting! However, I have a good 6 chapters going, a clear outline and I can almost watch the plot like a movie in my head. Pretty sure I'm on the right track!
