What's Been Going on in my Writing World...

I finished compiling a list of possible agents to contact a couple weeks ago, so I'm in the process of writing query letters to send out.  All of the agents I have information for either want to be e-mailed the queries, or there is an online form to use on the agency websites.

Some of them ask for a synopsis, or anywhere from 5 pages to three sample chapters of the manuscript to be included with the query letter.  Some agents don't mind attachments to be included, and some want everything to be in the body of the e-mail.

The Shepherdess Princess Sequel

Aside from the above, I spent some time yesterday updated my manuscript for Maryann, the next book in the series.  I'm about halfway done with the novel pertaining to word count.  I'm beginning to think that at the rate I've been adding new stuff to my spiral notebook, I'll actually be close to having the second book in the series done by the time the first book gets published.

Other Story Ideas

I was in the middle of writing a new scene in Maryann a couple weekend ago when I was struck with not one, but two new story ideas to write in the future.  One has political overtones, and the other is considered sci-fi/fantasy.  Yesterday, I also took some time out of my day to add these two novel ideas to the file I keep on my USB drive specifically for story ideas.
