Part of the hecticness that's been my life the past few weeks has been good hecticness. In my last round of queries, an agent actually took the time to tell me what was wrong with my sample chapter, give me the title of a book to read, and tell me that she'd read the re-write.
I re-wrote Chapter One three different ways, past them around and obsessed so badly I forbade myself from working on it Labor Day weekend.
I got it done. I sent it and the updated summary off yesterday!
Wow, I feel good.
So my fingers are crossed. Hopefully she likes it. If not, my writing is that my stronger because of this.
