Finish Friday: The Weredeer

Yes, okay, it's only just barely Friday still (11:59 pm as of right now), but I just finished my final editing pass on The Weredeer. It's good. I don't think I can improve it anymore right now. In other words, I've rewritten it to the limits of my current ability, which was my goal; I'm more proud of this book than I am of any other I've ever written. I think Little Sparrow is actually better written, but Little Sparrow isn't finished.

My next step is to finish polishing the query letter and then the synopsis. Then I'll try querying a few agents and see if I get any nibbles.

Congratulations - I'm still stuck in editing hell and I swear it's never going to end.

Cate--You'll make it! I thought I'd never finish this one.

Alan--Thanks!

Huzzah! Onward to querying!

Good luck with your book. I hope to be in the same position by October. I think by setting my self a deadline has help.

K.C. Shaw said...

Aaron--I'll save the huzzahs for when I start getting agent interest.

Jarmara--Deadlines usually help me too. I seem to do better if I have something to aim for in the short-term.
