Crickey I’ve just realised I’m my own worst enemy when it comes to editing my own copy. I know how a painter feels now and I wonder if I’ll ever be satisfied with the final product – Well of course I will when it is in print! 😉
I’m looking for a literary agent specialising in childrens stories at the moment. There seems to be a lot out there but it is the fear of the unkown and who not to trust with my (blood, sweat and tears) manuscript. I’ve done exactly what they want – sent a synopsis, the first three chapters and a cover letter. Looking at how much J.R.R Tolkien wrote I’m surprise he did not end up in the loony bin.
I get bored quickly and have a lot of ideas so in reality I have one main book I write but then do bits of other books I have started so I’m never bored at writing one particular book – writers block is none existent. yaaay!
Well I’ll keep you informed how my manuscript gets on – sent to two agents yesterday – that brings to a total of 6 agents overall so far. Someone doesn’t know it yet but they are going to be blown away by my fantastic story.
