A Writing Journey

Packet Ready

So I posted a while back that the manuscript of QFS was ready. Since then I have been working on the synopsis, story blurb, and cover letter required for my first submission. Tonight I’ve got it all printed out and stowed away – all that’s left is to send it. That will probably happen on Saturday, as I’ve got work most of the day tomorrow. I was really anxious about it, but now I’ve come to a calm place. Whether they take it or not, I’ve accomplished something, you know?

As far as other writing goes, I haven’t done much. I’ve been in a state of pretty constant chaos the last couple of months (moving, finding work, other personal stressors) and so have been very much away from writing. I think I’ll be getting back to it soon though – I feel the need to write starting to eat away at my insides.

The sequel to QFS – working title Scourge of the Daiyen – is about 3/4 of the way through the first draft. I remember now why I hate first drafts – they feel clunky and wrong and I forget to include important things. But that’s what rewriting is for.

I have some other ideas stewing as well: a couple more high fantasy, a psychological fantasy sort of deal (really don’t know how else to put it concisely), and a non-fiction.

Right now I’m trying to get myself back into writing daily, which has been tough with the amount of clutter around. Plus I fell down the stairs the other day so my tailbone is not liking to sit for long stretches of time. UGH.

Anyway, I’ll keep you updated about when I get my packet sent and how the writing is going. Thanks for hanging in there even through my hiatuses!

  1. Congratulations! What a great accomplishment. I hope your tailbone feels better. I took a tumble off my bike and bruised my ‘sitting area’ so I can sympathize. There will be a lot of walking around today… Happy writing!

  2. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. Good luck!
