I’m starting a new idiom – “Pride cometh before the multimillion-dollar book deal.”
Yes, I’m feeling proud – and twitchy and anxious and excited – because I am now officially querying agents for my new book, Wondermelt. I sent my first five emails tonight.
It’s a grueling process. But the book is worth it. And as my friend said, “You’re not terrified. This is what you want. Do it. You have to do it. You have to do it so you can do all the others.” He’s right, not that anyone’s surprised.
So! Here’s to this one, and that one, and all the others.
(And maybe, once the publishers’ bidding war has died down, I’ll even come back here and start blogging again.)
