We arrived in Zihua at 8am Wednesday morning, despite our bus leaving Mexico City an hour late. This time we went via Acapulco so instead of twelve hours like on the way there, we made it in nine. And I managed to sleep most of the way.
I haven't yet gathered my thoughts to tell you about the trip because I spent most of Wednesday reading the 140+ blogs in my Google Reader account AND going over my very last edits for my wip. Today I plan to make those final changes, tweak my synopsis then -- *fingers crossed* -- send that puppy out.
Part of me can't believe I've finally arrived at this point, but the other part is quick to remind me that I'd initially set a goal of querying by the end of February. If I'm counting correctly, I'm a bit off that mark. Now, before you get all encouraging and tell me that it's better to wait and make sure you present the best work possible, I'd like to point out that that's exactly what I did. I've spent an extra five months adding, revising, rewriting, cutting, and pasting, then I threw in some Mexican seasonings and here we are.
What's been fun is there are several blog friends out there who are also at this juncture. It's exciting to follow along with their journey since I understand (finally) exactly what they're going through. That said (and I can't remember if I said it here before or not), I don't plan to give blow-by-blow details of my query process here on my blog. I'll certainly share good news, but I don't want this to become a pity party.
So, now that you know what I'm doing today, what did I miss while I was gone?
