I'm so excited!
I have wanted to write since I was in grade school thirty years ago, and now my dream is a reality. Now I'm on my way to seek publication, but I've done some research and have come to the realization that saying I'm going to have a bestseller is about as delusional as saying I'm going to be the next great thing in Hollywood. So, not to be a negative Nellie, but I am going into the next phase with realistic expectations.
My current effort is researching the next step, and I'm going to take fellow blogger, Linda Jackson's advice and sit on the manuscript for a week before I reread it.
Okay- I've just popped back in to write down a hook sentence for a query letter. (This letter may take as long as my novel!) Tell me what you think! Please be honest.
Set in the jungles of the Amazon, Kate Wilson begins work as a volunteer nurse in a small clinic only to discover that the town is an agricultural source of the coca plant.
Suggestions for the web site www.agentquery.com. It had a great format!
Plus, here's a quote for the day:
"There are three rules for writing the novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are." W. Somerset Maugham.
