Just a quick update: I officially submitted my manuscript to an agent on Tuesday – well, the first 3 chapters of it. I had delayed because I wanted to polish the said chapters to sheen before sending them in. I’m told I should get a response within 2-8 weeks. I try not to expect too much. I know the odds are against me, no matter what the boosters tell me, and the local book club.
One way or another it’ll happen someday. Till then I keep polishing.
