|Good news, everyone!|
I could really use good news. It feels like an uphill struggle and I need stability. My day job isn't doing it, my writing isn't doing it. I can count on my family, but I need something more. I need to move, to make something happen. Something big is about to give in my life and I feel it coming. I just don't know what it is.
What I'd like to hear right now is that an agent loves my book - loves it for the fact it's story-driven, it's soaked with voice and tone, and it's about a teen who doesn't act her age. I want them to say they love the illustrations, they love the point of view, and they love that it's the start of a series so big I can't imagine what the end will be yet. I want them to say they believe in it and they want to represent me, so that it won't be just me and my book against the publishing world anymore.
What I'd also like to hear is that someone wants to hire me for skills I already have, not skills I have to acquire, and pay me what I'm really worth. That's what I want to hear right now.
What about you?
