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 haven't been as productive with my revising this week. I worked an extra night, and I have a stinking, streaming, sinus-filling cold, so sitting in my unheated writing room hasn't felt appealing. I've revised 8 now, so still on target if I'm working toward 4 a week, but slower than last week.
I'm celebrating the awesomeness of my CPs, especially Lexa Cain who has read and sent feedback on my chapters almost as soon as I've sent them. And she doesn't think they suck!
It's my youngest son's 7th birthday tomorrow, so I'm celebrating getting through 7 years without killing or damaging him in some way. Okay, there's probably psychological damage, but it won't manifest until he's older, right?
I got a lovely email from an agent about one of my books. It wasn't an offer, unfortunately, but it was the best kind of rejection, one where the agent loved the book, but just wasn't sure it would sell. It still hurts, but knowing someone out there loves the voice, the story and the writing makes me want to keep putting it out there. I always knew that book would be a tough one to sell, and I've been proven right over and over. I feel like I may need to think about publishing this one myself if I'm going to share it with the world. But I'm not sure that's a road I want to go down.
What are you celebrating this week?
