Here I am again

Amazingly, I’m still in one piece, despite a busy Christmas season. And it’s not over yet.

You see, my December looks like this:

Mom’s Birthday: 22nd
Christmas Eve (opening gifts): 24th
Christmas Day (Church and lunch): 25th
Uncle’s birthday: 26th
My Birthday: 28th (Money transfers welcome. ;-P)
New Year’s eve: 31st.

So as you can see, I’m not really getting time to sit still to blog without appearing to be anti-social.

Still, I’ve written a synopsis and revised my query again and again. I’m thinking I should send it to Query Shark before contacting agents, but that’s a story for IWSG.

In the mean time, I’m reading my friend Michael Offutt’s novel, Slipstream, at the moment, although the above-mentioned makes for some slow going. Ooh! Speaking of which, Oculus, the sequel to Slipstream is out, in case you’ve been living under a rock or missed all the posts about it this month. Go check these books out, if you haven’t yet. Mike’s one of my best CPs and he definitely knows the craft.

Alrighty then! I better get going again before my family sends out a search party.

See you again soon!

Who else have some important birthdays coming up between now and New Year’s eve? Anyone else still have family visiting?

  1. We did the “5 Christmases in 4 days” thing and my dad's birthday is next week, but otherwise we're winding down! Happy birthday to you – and send me your query if you want a fresh set of sort-of-okay-with-queries eyes on it!

  2. You do have quite the busy schedule happening.
    Happy Early Birthday, by the way 🙂

    For me, it's time to really make some progress in writing and steal a few moments for reading lol!

  3. Wow! You are busy this time of year. Luckily for me, family birthdays are well away from Christmas.

    Good luck with the query. Query Shark would be amazing if you get picked from the chum bucket, but I get the feeling that folks have slightly more chance of getting an agent than getting their query critiqued there. Another site you could try is The Public Query Slushpile, though it's been a while since I visited there and I don't know how active the site is there days.

  4. Nice and quiet here, the kids are playing video games with my husband and I'm catching up on some blogs. Good luck with your querying!! And enjoy your time with your family. 🙂

  5. Your December birthday calendar sounds like my May and August ones. I'm so glad my family list doesn't combine with the Christmas gift buying. Sheesh! I barelymade it through Christmas shopping.

    Good luck on the querying.
