One of the other members of our little squad spent a bunch of time sending out queries the other day. Due to Misty's hard work and the quality of her writing, she has also garnered interest by several agents. I know she will be picked up by one of them. How could they not? Her writing is witty and honest and draws you in so you actually care about what happens to the characters.
These two friends of mine spent yesterday keeping the rest of us updated on their progress and success. I am so incredibly happy for them. I wish I lived closer to them so we could hug and party.
But I'm also a little jealous. Not to worry - it's all good. I am very happy for them, they deserve all the good that comes their way, but it is human for me to wish it was me. :)
My day will come. And I know they will be there for me as I am for them. To celebrate and cheer and send good wishes. Or to kick me when I think it will never happen.
Progress - none. This was a day off for me.
