Well, I did some more revisions on my river story to resend to the agent. I'm over halfway done. WOO HOO However, I'm just going back over and polishing and doing minor revisions, since there was no specific changes requested. I'm really hoping she'll love it and sign me! LOL Isn't that what we all want? I'm going to be hopeful...yes, Ronie, I said I was going to get hopeful again! Even though I was so disappointed before. Oh well, it's all about continuing to get hopeful.

How about each of YOU? How are you standing?

5 rejections. Another seven queries still out there, and a list of about 12 more agents to query.

I am working on cutting down my word count, which is absolutely the most stringent editing I've ever done. I'm weighing every sentence and every piece of dialogue. I never though I was wasteful with words when I wrote, but I've found parts that sound much better after I've removed half the description. I've also found parts where nothing needs/can be removed.

And I've mapped out a few more details in my NiP.

I have six day left of my 5 month wait from a publishing company. I am hopeful, but if it doesn't happen, I'm ok. There are others.
