I Knew You'd Want to Know

When this first happened Monday, I hesitated to post it here, thinking it might be perceived as boasting. But then this little voice said,

"If it was one of your blog friends, you'd want to know so you could rejoice with them." Right! I would! I'd dance and prance and eat some chocolate in your honor if this happened to you! So here's my big news: One of the agents I met with at the conference last month wants to see a partial of my WIP! Yippee Dippee! and "God Help Me!"

She needs it in two weeks, so my little fingers and brain are working overtime to revise, polish and edit the chapters I have done so far. I am elated and cautious at the same time. If she likes it, she will want to see the full ms, which means tons of work for me over the next few months, which is fine, I love to work. If she doesn't like it, that's okay, too, it just means I go back to the computer and the Lord for further instruction.

Mostly, I'm happy, and I thought you'd want to know, because I believe you'll be happy with me. And pray with me, too, please? That no matter what, I will glorify Jesus in my writing and my life.

Thanks and love,

P.S. Don't forget to check back tomorrow for interview with edgy novelist Patti Lacy.
