Good news friends. My pitch outfit–with some help from my pedicure–totally worked. The senior editor of the publisher I want to publish with wants my full manuscript. The WHOLE thing.
Doesn’t mean it’s going to actually get published, but apparently those sort of requests don’t happen very often.
The bad news is he wants it in two weeks. Two weeks from last Friday. Which is actually less than two weeks now. Which wouldn’t be a big deal except for the fact my manuscript is about an eternity away from being submittable. Sadly this means my blog will be on hiatus while I do some major editing.
Other things on hiatus during the next two weeks: house cleaning, responsible parenting, and my life.
But in some awesome news, my husband swept, mopped, AND polished the floor while I was gone, thereby eliminating any need for socks ever again.
Or at least for the next two weeks. Because I’m pretty sure by the end of my hiatus from everything that doesn’t involve me scowling at my laptop, we’re going to need socks all over our whole bodies to create a barrier from the dirt.
