Hello to everyone! I've missed you all more than I can say. :)
Well, I'm back from the Tri-Cities, and it was a wonderful visit. I saw my friends (wonderful) I swam in a pool (wonderful) and I got a bit of a tan (wonderful)!
Now I'm back in beautiful, rainy Western Washington, and I'm happy to be home. Because this is home now, and the Tri-Cities is a fantastic, nostalgic vacation spot.
Isn't that kind of how it is with novels?
Say you have one WIP. It's where you spend all your time, passion, and heart - it's home. But there comes a time when you need to send it out, to move on, and to keep writing. And a lot of times, your second WIP is quite different from your first.
There are times you want to go back. Times you need that old taste of comfort. But in the end, you have have to move on.
What was it like 'moving away from' your last WIP? Did the Shiny New One help?
OH! There's this AWESOME Pitch Contest over at Chanelle's blog with her agent Victoria Marini! Check it out, it looks awesome!
