In the meantime, I was thinking. How well do I actually know the people who follow my blog and/or I follow? So anyway, if you could look at my questions below and give me your social security number and blood type that would be great! Obviously, I'm joking -- I can't even remember my own social security number half the darn time.
These are just some easy questions I think it would be fun to know about one another! If there's one you don't feel comfortable answering, it's okay to skip it. :o) And even if you're new, or lurking, I still want to hear from ya!
I'll go first.
1) Name: Tracy
2) Family Situation: single, no kids. Hope to change that someday, but for now it stands.
3) Project Status: Gemini Cursed is my first ever finished story. After a brief false start, it is now polished & ready to re-begin the querying process.
4) How long did it take me to write? From first word, to finished revisions (and even now I'm still playing around with the ending a tad) -- it took me seven months total.
5) First thing I'll do upon landing an agent/ publishing deal? After I scream into my pillow for a good five-ten minutes, I'll start furiously working on my third ms. Wanting to stay ahead of the pace for when my agent (hopefully) asks to see more work.
6) Favorite non-writing activity? My love for baseball has obviously been covered, so I'm going to have to go with reading. I'm the kind of person that doesn't mind doing "short reads", as in if I've got five free minutes I'm fine with knocking out a page or two of whichever book I'm currently reading.
7) One totally random fact about myself? I'm actually certified to be a canine obedience instructor -- yet the only dogs who have benefited from that are my own. I wanted to look into a future of training service dogs, but for some reason I haven't put in the time or energy to pursue it further.
8) Why do I think people will want to read my story if/when it's published? Hmmm, good question. On the days when my insecurity isn't telling me that my story sucks and no one will ever want to read it, I'd have to say ... it's a fairly unique twist on a love story. More than anything, I believe I was lucky enough to create characters that I think people will like and want to root for.
Okay, so now it's your alls (a phrase that will not be found in any of my writings) turn!
