Today I’m going to finish a manuscript. This is the one I’ve been saying I’m going to finish for weeks now. I’ve been chasing the ending and not finding it. You know when the grocery list blows out of your hand in the parking lot and you run after it but every time you think you’ve got it cornered the wind blows and it flies away again? I’m in that place where I’m going to pounce on it, and finally get it. If the wind stays calm.
Then comes the terrifying part: sending it to my agent. In addition to knowing the market so well, Laura Rennert has a Ph.D in English. This means every time I send her anything I cringe. (As does she.)
I promise you tomorrow’s blog will say: I’m done!
