I'm Back . . .

Yes, I survived vacation . . . barely. Thursday about killed me! Seriously, people, I no longer have the stamina to drink/dance all night long!

Did I have fun? Oh, yeah! It was a fun relaxing trip - good food, good times, walks on the beach, days spent floating in the pool, and good friends to hang around with!

Am I glad to be back? Yes! I like my normal, everyday routine.

Would I go again? In a heartbeat!

So, now that I'm back in the real world, and blogging once more. Let me tell you, I missed checking on the blogs on a daily basis, leaving comments, and just seeing what my fellow bloggers were up to in this crazy journey called writing.

Now that I am back I have a major dilemma before me. As you know, I've been working on a new WIP. I haven't written a word in a week, but I've been on vacation, and that was from writing as well. Now that I'm back (I wonder how many times I can use that phrase in this blog???), I have to decide what to do. My choices are: finish my WIP, rework my query and send it out to five agents at once, or do one more read through of the project I'm querying just to see if it needs any more tweaks. Then again, I could do that while I do the endless waiting game after sending the queries out. Hmmmm . . . .

I hope to get back in some type of routine tonight . . . which will dissolve into nothingness after Thursday since I'm gone again this coming weekend for a family reunion. : ) Oh, the joys of life and writing.

Have a great day. I promise to post something more in-depth at some point!

Gosh is it really a week gone by?
Good to hear you had a good time.
Unwind by re-reading, then re-write your query and send it. Then do the tweaks on your WiP,this will take your mind off of the fact,that you have queries floating around the big wide writing world. :))

Welcome back! It's nice having all the writing options, yes?

Three, "Now that I'm back," is probably enough! :) Take a break from the tweaking. That's what I would do. I would probably get into the new WIP. But that's me.

Oh and vacation sounded great. Made me jealous. How many margaritas did Scott consume on any given vacation night? Hmm, here's an idea. You could hold a contest to see who can guess the right answer. *snaps fingers* Instead of worrying about what to do, hold the contest. :)

So glad you had fun! So... you going to look at the info. I sent you if you decide to work on the query thing?

Good luck catching up and deciding how to prioritize!

Here's the Plan - rework query using Elana's critique (shred, shred, shred - kidding) and the info Lady Glamis provided, then post it on one/two of the query slashing (ooops, critiquing) sites and see what happens. From that point, I'll rework again and just send it out and hope for the best.

As for tweaking, a little here and there, nothing major. I plan to keep working on my WIP and try to balance a few other things. I'm gone again this weekend.

Summer is so much fun, dont you just love it? Here's wishing you a good night's sleep and lots of energy for more summer fun. (I think we are about the same age and I totally get the part about how your brain says yes! to dancing all night, but your body says, what are you thinking!?!)
