Exciting times

Just a quick fly by update before breakfast.  I am so excited, I have received my very first full manuscript request!

I am going to be giving my work one final speed read to check for anything I may have missed in my many, many edits and then off it goes.  I know that nothing may come from it, but I am so excited I just needed to share the news.

I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend, keep your fingers crossed for me.  I can’t believe how excited I feel, I have butterflies and feel like dancing around the floor, all this from someone simply asking to see it.  I’m a writer and I honestly can’t find the words to explain how I feel right now.

My little man is up and about, so it’s breakfast time 🙂  enjoy your weekend.

Work in progress

Hi all and welcome to my blog.  I am fairly new to social media and a complete novice at blogging.  These are things I am attempting to correct in hope to meet new people and (I won’t lie) hopefully generate a following for my work.

I am an aspiring fantasy author, although currently seeking agent representation for my work I do have high hopes that at some point in the future my work will be available for the public.

It’s an exciting time, my worst enemy at the moment is impatience.  I have worked really hard on ensuring the quality of my work, the strength of plot and characters.  I am eager to hear something, anything back from the people I have submitted my work to.  I have already received two rejections, yet one of them had a positive spins and advised  that the work wasn’t quite right for them, but I should keep looking.  It was a much nicer rejection than the form letters or no replies I had anticipated.  I imagine I will have many more rejections, but it only takes one person to say yes, one person to believe that my work is a good fit for their company.  I am optimistic, optimistic but impatient, I really want people to read my work, to hear what they think, good or bad, every opinion.

I plan to keep this blog as a record of my thoughts and progress on my aim of becoming a published author, if you are reading it, I hope you’ll enjoy sharing this journey with me.
