Wow! Can you believe it's almost the end of February already? I guess it's a good thing. We've finally had a few beautiful days here, so I'm not complaining.

I've made a lot of progress this week, and I'm officially on submission because of it! I rewarded myself with this baby (and a bottle of wine):

Here's where I am on my goals for the month:

  • Revise my query letter.
  • Read through my post-beta-edits draft.
  • Make any necessary changes.
  • Revise my synopsis.
  • Revise my query letter again.
  • And if all that gets done...
  • Query!
  • And start outlining book two, because Lord knows it's going to take some time.

Adding a manuscript critique to that for this week--one that I'm terribly excited about :)

How are you doing on your goals?


  1. Again, CONGRATS, Liz :-)))) And crossing my fingers for you!

  2. Well done, Liz!! And all the best with querying--I hope you get a lot of positive feedback. :)

  3. You've done so awesome with your goals this month, Liz! Best wishes as you query. Here's hoping for good news very soon!

  4. How awesome is that? You completed your goals! Good luck on submission with agents. A very exciting time! You're already doing the best possible next step--working on another project while you wait. :)

  5. Wow, huge congratulations! YOU DID IT! All the confetti for making your goals and getting your work out there. And fingers crossed now that you've entered Fight Club territory. :-)

  6. Yay! Well done for getting your novel queried. Hope someone snaps you up immediately!

    And that chocolate frog is so much better than the ones I used to get in shops!

  7. Excellent news! Crossing fingers and toes! good luck this week!

  8. Nice! It's so cool that your to-do list has so many things crossed off. Best of luck with the querying!

  9. Good job!! That's huge! Congrats. You deserve all the celebrations! :)

  10. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How exciting (and nail-biting) to be on submission! Good luck! I'm sending many positive vibes your way!
