I write a bit of everything, I try to get some of it published. Most times, I get rejected. I submit again (to other places). Eventually, I get published. In the meantime, I complain about the hazards of real life. It's a process, really.
I am soooo excited right now. The lovely agents over at FinePrint Lit are offering a chance to have your first page (250 words) of your novel dissected. I sent both of my novels' first pages. I'm very, very excited to hear back from them as most rejections are form letters, and I'd like to know if I'm losing people on my first page.
