Little to report on the writing front. I’ve been hammering away at a query letter for Genie Memories. Steph has proven most helpful in sorting through the mess. She spent maybe 45 minutes reading through sample query letters and advice over at Absolute Write, then sat down to help me out. I threw the first draft up on the Share Your Work forums and got some great feedback.
In between, I’ve been working on the plot for Favors. Parts of it are coming together quite nicely and it’s doing wonders for keeping my sanity intact while fighting with the query letter.
But that’ll be on hold as tomorrow we head west to the City of Angels. Steph’s cousin is getting married in Los Angeles (Manhattan Beach, to be precise) and we’re heading out to attend and do a little bit of soaking in the sun.
On top of that, I get the added bonus of seeing Viable Paradise bud Chia Evers. I’m kind of excited about this. Outside of the wonderful Catherine Schaff-Stump, I haven’t seen anyone from VP XIII since leaving Martha’s Vineyard. So yeah, I’m looking forward to it and it should be a good time.
But first, off to bed so we can make the drive up to Minneapolis and catch a flight.
