This is the way the year ends
I hope you all had a pleasant holiday. I'm off work until tuesday, so I'm not quite out of the season yet. Still kicking back. If you consider six hours at the computer formatting your novel kicking back.
So, yeah, the big thing that happened to me this week was hearing back from a certain agent. Seems that he liked the first three chapters of KDR, and has requested the balance of the manuscript. Like I said, it took me six hours to get it all formatted in manuscript form and then printed out, but it's done. Sitting on my desk right now. I'm going to get a copy made at kinko's tomorrow, then into ye mail it goes. It's a big step. Well, it's the next step. And considering I had pretty much written this novel off and was going to be concentrating on short stories for the next six months or so, it's nice to have this just kind of drop in out of the blue.
I promise I'll talk about something other than writing in the next day or two. But the last quarter of 2005 has been good to me, professionally speaking.
