Celebrate the Small things again
This post is part of VikLit's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up!
So, what am I celebrating this week?
I won another pitch contest and when I sent Stumped to the requesting agent, she wrote right back saying how excited she was to read my book. You'd better believe that put a smile on my face!
Brandy gave me an award for reading her blog (which I found through the blog hop BTW). So thanks, Brandy!
I managed to find time to see a couple of films in the Festival and they were both good. If you get to see the Mexican/Spanish film La Jaula de Oro (the Golden Cage), don't miss it. It's a really unique, fresh take on a road movie, focusing on a group of Guatemalan teens trying to make it into the USA.
And while I haven't got a whole lot of writing done, I have hit the 25K mark. I'm still concerned the pacing is off, but I guess I can fix that up later. For now I'm focusing on writing through to the end. I know I always make vast changes in my second draft, but somehow I forget that while I'm worrying my way through the first.
What are you celebrating this week?
