That Send Button

Well, I sent my first query on Friday. This is what it felt like.
Pressing that send button is so hard. I set up everything perfectly. I have the query, the introduction, the attachments in PDF, the subject, the email address. All that remains is that dratted send button. It would probably still be unsent if I hadn't promised Robin, the writing-accountability-partner-who-really-needs-her-own-introduction-soon, that I'd send it Friday.

I have a goal to send 15 queries this week. I think I can do it. It's a bit crazy, but then, I like to think I'm a bit crazy. I wouldn't be doing this if I wasn't.

Also, I bought Save the Cat. {If you didn't know, Walmart offers free ship-to-store for a lot of online products, including StC. And StC was cheaper that way than buying it on Amazon. Just a note.) I'm super excited, and I hope to implement everything I learn into the next MS. Because of course - there will be another MS. I'm working on two right now, the sequel to Those Who Trespass and another princess one. Just can't stay away from those princess ones.

And in addition to querying, reading, and writing fiction...I'm writing college application essays. Oh, joy.

This has been your random assortment of writing updates.
