A Positive Step Forward - Submitted a Query to an Agent

This is progress for me. I had written a middle grade novel a little while ago and put it aside.

It really needed serious editing, so I did! The difficult part about the editing process is that we writers all love our very clever words. Understanding that no matter how clever those words are, if they don't advance the narrative, then they need to be cut.

Finished the edit after cutting a good bit out, and ended up with a 45,000 word masterpiece.

Did some online research on Agentquery.com and found someone suitable.

So off it went.

Cross fingers for me.

And all you other DU writers - consider this a nudge from me to get back at it.
