I’ve given the first few chapters of my manuscript a good polish and have sent it out to another agent today. I think I’m going to try sending off my manuscript to agents every other week rather than every week. I’ve sent it out to six already and every agent has a timescale of at least six weeks so it’ll be while before I hear from them. I don’t think I really want responses to come in all at once and, besides, it’ll give me more time to work on my other stuff, such as my reviews. In fact, I think I’ll alternate between sending out a manuscript and posting a review.
I’ll start the week after next as my birthday is next Sunday and my weekend’s a bit full at the moment. Besides, I think it’ll be okay for me to take a break for one week.
My least productive day of the week was Monday and for a good reason. I failed my driving test first time and it was a huge personal disappointment for me. I tried to write to distract myself with writing but it didn’t work. My emotions really got in the way of my writing and I really had to force myself to get any words on the document. So much for the myth that masterpieces are created through pain. Does anyone else feel a drop in their writing motivation and quality when they’re feeling low or does it actually make it better?
Still, I managed to finish my The Rest Falls Away Review. It’s turned out a lot longer than the last one. Probably, because I’ve got more negative things to say about it. I’ll post it in a moment.
