Piece of a Dream

Hey everyone!

I know I am doing my blog series, but it is on hold...JUST this week, because I have something more important to announce.

Now, I know announcing that you have an agent is probably a better post, but I've been writing for....around ten years. Within those ten years, I have gotten a lot of rejections. I know I wasn't ready to query. My manuscript wasn't read to be read, either. In April, I rewrote my book and it only took four months.

I've been doing revisions, and working hard on a query and synopsis with the help of some great writer friends.

Thursday I got my first FULL request from an agent!

I was in tears.

Tears because it felt so wonderful. Because my goal when I began to query was to only reach that step. I told myself, "It'll be great if I can just get to the next step..."

And I did!!

I am ecstatic. In my mind, even if I get a rejection, I have proven I can make it to the next level. I'm so much closer to achieving my dreams!
