Ok, I'm really starting to question my writing abilities. I was completely joking yesterday when I said I was tempted to give up on my book, but I received several inspirational emails not to give up. I appreciate the support, I really do, but I'm not quitting at the easy part!
Querying, writing the query, waiting for requests, writing a synopsis, waiting, waiting, getting rejected, waiting... THAT'S where I'll need the encouragement!
I'm a little stuck on my description of my first visit to the Mexican Consulate, but I read a bit from my writing book and I'm feeling more motivated. I'm also quite amused at some of the logistical errors I've made - a side-effect of writing with the edit button turned off. The current one is I got in line, then in the next paragraph was still walking to the building. Small details.
Anyway, one sweet thing I thought I'd share happened while I was in Chicago. My brother is living in my old apartment & we left quite a few things in his care. Including my plants. When I arrived, I was sweetly surpised to see my plants alive & thriving! Now I feel like I have something waiting for me when we go back. Aww.
I've also decided to add a new feature to each blog entry. I bought a thermometer while I was home & it's now sitting one foot above my computer. Each I will include the temp & humidity reading, just because I can! Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!
