Unfortunately, I ran into another case of my Rain Man tendency, so I spent the last two hours playing around with the layout of my blog as opposed to writing an entry or responding to others. Not the most productive use of my time, I know. Did I NOT just make a post admonishing myself over my bouts of procrastination? I need an intervention.
I did restart the query process this week though. I've decided to do one a day. That way it doesn't feel so overwhelming, and hopefully if there are rejections to be had they won't all come rolling in on the same day.
Speaking of queries ...
Jim McCarthy of DGLM posted a contest on their blog. Between now and 4/22 (Thursday), Jim offers bloggers the chance to post the first line of their manuscript in the comments section. He'll choose a handful of his favorites to be offered up for a vote ... and the winner gets a full manuscript review from Mr. McCarthy -- wait for it -- without having to submit a query!!!
Seriously, if you haven't gone over there already ... DO IT!
Also, blogging buddy Mary McDonald is going to post her interview with published author John Hemry, on her blog tomorrow (Tuesday), so go take a look.
Now, I'm going to go watch the Orioles try to pull out their third win of the season -- I know, you don't have to say it -- and try not to do any further unnecessary fiddling with my blog.
