So I was reflecting on the year to come and contemplating how to fit it all in. I had paralyzing fear penciled in for the first few months, followed by a six-week self-pity retreat, and I was keeping the summer open for raging self-doubt.
And then I thought: No.
Oh my dearies.
It’s not just that I’ve been keeping secrets from you. Turns out I spend most of my time tharn in the middle of life’s headlights. But enough of that sorry behavior.
This year, I’m going to tell all: about my dream-date query experience with HitList, what Random House said about my book and about those next two novels in the queue.
Look for juicy tell-all posts, good advice on badass queries and how to make agents fight over you. Plus, tips on how to blow it all because you’re going through an ugly divorce.
What’s after that? Who knows. Maybe I’ll even update my Facebook status.
Here’s hoping you are in the midst of your own brave plans for 2015.
Love your play on words in the first paragraph! I experience some of those things I 2014 too, but his year… This year is going to be like no other year I’ve had in a long time. Sometimes, we do have to stop and say, No!!! Thank you for sharing this with me.
Aw, thanks Latanya. 100% agree. Best of luck in making your 2015 great. 🙂
I look forward to much more from one of my favorite writers. 🙂
Right back at your, J Hardy Carroll. Reading Hawser and looking forward to Fifty Cent Soul
