November Update

Whew! I finally got back to working on Boomerang Wars this past weekend, and tonight I hit the halfway mark! At least I hope it's the halfway mark. I tend to go over projected word count on a first draft. I had to rein in a sub-plot I contemplated adding, although it's still in the back of my mind. Which could be a bad thing...'cause Miss Muse takes over my mind sometimes and I have no control (over Musey, that is). Anyway, after working on something else for a while, it felt good to get back to BW. I'd love to finish the first draft by the end of the year, even though the holidays tend to get in my way. Egads...I'm even toying with the idea of killing off another character. I don't know if my other characters can handle it without complete destruction of the family unit. Magic, murder and mayhem...Musey's moto.

The agent search has slowed down because I just haven't had the time. I really need to focus my energies on WRITING, crafting, creating, the art. Obsessing over agents and queries, etc. was really putting a damper on Miss Muse. I still have queries, fulls and partials out there, and the hunt will go on, slowly but surely. I will snag an agent. I will snag an agent. I will snag an agent. Clicking my heels now!
