Too many distractions, not enough chocolate… January 20, 2011

In my quest to pull up my socks and query agents this week, I’m down to less than two days left and I’m slipping behind in my targeted number of a baker’s dozen. Ugh!

This week has been full of distractions, and I’ve sworn off chocolate (damn fool that I am) which isn’t helping me, because I’m now lacking in my usual sugar rush action mode.

So, status update: I’ve sent six queries. Okay, I lied. I’ve sent five and prepared a sixth, but it needs to be mailed not emailed, so although it’s ready, it’s not officially sent yet. That’s less than half, but if I blog less and query more, I might just have a chance of doing the virtual happy dance for all of you.

It’s better than donning the cone of shame. Back to it!

    I hear you. I’m knee-deep in query letters today, too.

    Maybe it’s time to rethink your position on chocolate. I sympathize with (and share) the spreading butt problem, but sometimes, darn it, we need to make sacrifices for our art. In fact, I think I’ll join you (nummmhmmnummn).

    • This week has been brutal for me…too much holiday anticipation on the brain I think. I have spun my wheels all week and don’t feel like I have anyting to show for it! ARGH!

      Thank you by the way. I feel less alone. nummmmhmmm indeed!
