Nothing Much

Sorry about the lack of Book Blog.  I didn't really read anything this weekend worth commenting about.  I'm working an a panel of my local RWA chapter and I don't want to comment here because so you were sans blog.

Nothing much doing here.  I'm working (unsuccessfully) on 30,000 words this month and editing my completed ms.

Oh, and because I am determined to keep all my peeps in the loop, I received three rejections in the space of two days.  The two agents that I queried passed.  Within hours of receiving my query, so, yeah appreciate their quick response.  Nothing like the sting of rejection first thing in the morning.  But, that's life.  That's the unpublished author life anyway.  I accept defeat and I move forward.  Onward and upward.  

Oh, and has anyone seen the movie 'Secretary'?  It's a quirky independent film with Maggie Glyllenhaal and James Spader (I LOVE HIM!).  It's this crazy story about a woman realizing she's a submissive after a stop in crazy town and I-cut-myself-ville.  James Spader plays a dom.  I can hear the ladies over at Dear Author lamenting the fact that she turned in a life a cutting herself for one of submission, but I don't care.  I loved the story.  To me, it was quirky, funny, dark, and sexy.  It proved that when it comes to matters of the heart, there's a shoe for every foot as my mama says.  So if you haven't seen it, do!  

Later Gators

First of all, I'm sorry about the rejections. That sucks, but it's three closer to yes. (Yeah, I never bought that one, either ;))

And I've seen Secretary. I agree with your assessment. It's an interesting twist on a timeless message.

Really sorry to hear about your rejections, Monica. It takes courage to submit, so you're ahead of me there, because I've only submitted thus far as part of contests. Though that'll be changing very soon.

Oh, and I haven't seen Secretary, but I love James Spader, too. From Helen's blog, I know you're like me and not as fond of blond men, so it's pretty funny we both like him. In Pretty In Pink (yeah, awhile ago) he was to die for.

The rejections strike a mean blow but I agree with helen. It puts you one step closer to where you want to be.

You'll make it.
