In the mail

Since Monday's a holiday and the post office is closed, I went ahead and mailed my partial off today to the agent who requested it. Through the mail! So totally oldschool! That meant I had to revise the synopsis without outside input, but I got it to where I was pretty happy with it. I figure the agent will look at my pages first; if he likes them, he'll read the synopsis to make sure the book doesn't fizzle or go off in a weird direction or whatever. If he doesn't like my pages, the best-written synopsis in the world won't help.

So cross your fingers that he likes it. And the couch moving men are here, which means *sigh* I've got to get up and herd the cats away from the open door.

Good luck, I have my fingers crossed for you.

Fingers and toes crossed. The synopsis is always second to the pages, and I'm sure your pages sizzle.

Thanks, guys! I hope my pages sizzle. (For one thing, I just like saying sizzle. That's a fun word.)

Good luck, good luck, good luck.

Good luck. While I will not be crossing either fingers or toes (because I have need of them) I'm doing this thing with my tongue that quite possibly counts.

Thanks! And Josh, I don't really want to know what you're doing with your tongue. Although I hope it works. :)
