and the Insecure Writer's Support Group.
Anyway, the Insecure Writer's Support Group is today, the first Wednesday of the month, and all of us insecure writers have a chance to, well, be insecure, unless we have good news or advice we'd also like to impart. I don't have much in the way of that this month, but do wish me continued luck with my submissions currently out with agents after last month's #DVPit. I'm still agonizing over my manuscript and checking off rejections in Query Tracker, but it's also only been a month (not even, really), so I continue to figuratively bite my nails in anticipation.
Well, I guess I do have slightly good news, as getting so many agent likes during a pitch contest was a first, and then one of the agent's assistants asked to see the full after seeing a sample. A HUGE FIRST. I did accidentally reply without switching out e-mail addresses, but they were kind enough to ask me to send it again. Spazz.
Now for this month's IWSG question: What is your favorite aspect of being a writer?
I love that everywhere I turn, everyone I run across, and even every dream I have and remember is a potential story. We always have so many thoughts brewing in ours heads trying to come together to make a book. Not a lot of people have the imagination, drive, or patience to do what we do! (I also like the idea of one day being a professional daydreamer. *wink*)
See you around the 'sphere!
Congratulations on the request of a full! That's awesome.
That's wonderful news about the request!! Congratulations and best of luck with the :)
Yes, that ever looming dream of becoming a professional daydreamer. Here's to that day coming SOON!!
Congratulations, Deb. That's a huge accomplishment. Happy for you.
Congratulations on the request! That's so exciting!
I agree. I work with someone and I think to myself all the time what a fantastic character she would make in my next book. :)
SQUEEEE!!! A full request? Yay! You're moving up the world. Way to go! *high five*
Good luck on the query-go-round. That's a tough place to be. Lots of ups and downs.
Thank you, ahhh!

I too appreciate the IWSG and finding authors like you, with whom I can relate. Good luck on your queries - it sounds like you're doing all the hard work and it's just a matter of time until it pays off. Encouraging news about the agent. I also don't know where November (or October for that matter) has gone. Before we know it, it will be Christmas. www.dianeweidenbenner.com
Thank you! Nice to meet you. :D
