I have 18 query letters still out, but I’m thinking that it’s time for me to shelve my ms for awhile and focus on my current WIP. I have over 50 agents still available to query, but I don’t feel the urgent need to continue to get kicked in the teeth with rejections, not until I fully understand what is wrong with it and fix it.

Here is what I’m focusing on:
Entering a short story contest for Writer’s Digest. I’m editing it one more time today and then sending it off on Wed.

Entering the NPR three minute writing contest– subject has to be about a President, fictional or real.

I’m starting the plotting class with Kris Neri and my first assignment is to write the dust cover blurb for my current WIPII.

Continue to work on WIPII, 9k words into it.

For me that makes my plate very full. What are you working on?
