I like sleep. Just lying there, resting my head, closing my eyes, allowing the mind to wander. This month has to be some kind of record for disturbing/motivating dreams. This time concerning rejected queries.
It came in the mail, a yellow envelope, and I thought, I already got back what I mailed months ago, and I never sent an SASE. So I open it. I didn't recognize the name, but the agency rang a bell. Now, there's this thing about not being unable to read in dreams. For some reason, I can, and the letter went something like this:
Dear Mr. King,
*however* You have an interesting premise. I would like to see what you can do with a little polish. I printed out the first chapter and offered notes for improvement. Do this for your whole MS and send it to me to me to ...
I woke up nervous, excited, and laughing.
An agent, sending me notes? Who does that?
Even though it was a dream, I'm glad my inner agent thinks it's worth the time, so back to work I go.
Speaking of agents, I'm happy to announce my good blogging buds Cassie Mae and Donna Hosie were agent-swept last week. Congratulations to you both! Head over and congratulate them, if you haven't yet.

I'm moving! Not house moving. I did that last year and am not looking forward to that any time soon. I don't often talk about work (HIPPA would be on my case if I did), but due to changes and stuff, I've been asked to move into an office. With a window. By myself.
How totally unexpected! I've never had personal office space before. Not sure if this is a reward for good behavior, but I'll take it! By doing so, I have to relocate all my personal and work relateds. Might take a while.

Update: Enough of this dragging-my-feet business. I said Woven revisions would be done in August and I mean it. On a cool note, my sister, who is ultra picky when it comes to books (in a good way) finished the first half and said, "Send me the rest. Stat!"
What a great motivator. I'm on it, sis!
There's a lot to be had on the blog this week, so check back often. There will be tropes, reviews, randomness and advice that you won't want to miss.
