I signed my contract with Joan Paquette from the Erin Murphy Literary Agency today. I’m thrilled to be working with Joan, who is a writer herself and had great suggestions for a round of revisions before submission.
Thanks to all my friends who have been so supportive through this process. Especially Suzette and Carolyn, who have dropped everything to read through the manuscript multiple times recently on short notice.
Marla, you’re a rock. I can’t wait to start filming! You gave me hope for what I thought was a box-under-the-bed project.
Lauren, you made me realize it was time to query and move forward again. Your “pay it forward” attitude is awe-inspiring.
Special shout out to my online friends Lisa, Michelle, Terri, Elana and Heather for tolerating my angst, and kudos to Jess for helping me over the rough spot when things hit a wall, and Leah who spent time on the phone helping me figure stuff out when I received the first offer.
I also need to thank Pat for enduring endless prattle and Dotti for not rolling her eyes when I thought out loud for hours at Jason’s Deli.
People say writing is a solo endeavor. I disagree. This particular writer has had the benefit of a support team. I owe all of you. Call in those chips anytime.Explore posts in the same categories: Critique Groups comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
