Sending out the mss

I am working at creating or recreating my manuscripts after loosing the flash drive with everything on it.. It is long, long hard work and is more tiring than the original writing.

Although the manuscripts are much better, I have to say. My descriptions are turning into experiences. This is a wonderful surprise. Who knows by the time I finish this rewrite maybe the agents that I dream of wanting my books will actually be wowed (is that a word?).

I've not sent my manuscripts to hundreds I'm afraid. I don't think I am doing what I'm suppose to do or what I've learned in the conventions. There are a few agents and a publisher that I really think are wonderful and I have put my hopes in them at least for a while.

I am told that I need a blog to reach the thousands of people who will read my books. I have now created the blog for you thousands. Oh and for all the agents and publishers who are fighting over me you will know be a little better now that you are aware of who I am. I am a beginner. Opps. I don't think I'm suppose to say that. This choice of Font sucks. I've got to get a blog that I can really work with.

Above you see my proudest moment as an "author" so far. I am at the SCBWI conference with my idol Holly Black. That is as close as I have come so far. sigh. By the way, I made a complete ass of myself.

But I continue writing every second of my spare time just like I am on a dead line.

The most devestating thing happened. I lost my flash drive with all of my lastest work on my manuscripts. This put my work back for quite a spell.
