Well, this has been a really crappy week. I'm still really bruised over that bloody typo, but there's nothing I can do about it now.
I've had interest in my manuscript once, from Awaticka Literary Agency. I thought the letter was too enthusiastic to be honest at first. As it turns out though, and with many, many thanks to Ms. Strauss at Writer's Beware, Awaticka is absolutely legitimate, if young and inexperienced.
So, I'd like to take this moment to thank Awaticka for their interest, and I'm sorry for my initial distrust. I think I'll have to follow my instinct on this, however, and submit elsewhere. I'm going to send them chocolates though, because they were considerate.
I received another rejection this morning, from P.S. Literary. They didn't even know my name. It simply read "Dear Author." Seriously guys... did you even read it? Le sigh. Oh well, someone else will pick it up.
The highlight of the week? Training. I managed to get out all my aggression and disappointment through training this week. It was great. Even better, a Kung Fu sister of mine who hadn't been around in a long while dropped by to training today. It was lovely to have her around, and I do hope she shows up more often. As it is there is a remarkable deficit of woman in that class!
Even better was the "end of the training week" dinner we regularly have Thursday nights. Oh the discussion was wonderfully "literary geek." It made me happy.
Right, I have a whole new list of agents to annoy (insert evil laugh), so I best get on that. Have a great weekend everyone!
