Writing break & querying baby steps
Brought along some manuscripts and got great feedback from Papa on my YA fantasy WIP, Katyani's Curse. Not his usual genre, obviously, but his critique was spot on. Go figure.
I did send out three and a half queries before we left. But I'm holding off on major querying until after the Kara Lareau workshop next Sunday. So looking forward to it!!! Hope her critique of the first pages of LEELA help me give them a final polish ... they've been revised so much I've lost all perspective. I've a horrible feeling that they look a bit like Michael Jackson's face after too many surgeries. However, the queries I did send have resulted in two fulls out with two great agents (Yay! Fingerscrossed, fingerscrossed, fingerscrossed ...)!!! Hope I haven't sent them out prematurely ... gulp.
