My Baby has Finally Departed

Thursday: I was all set to do my final proof read so I could send off my manuscript, but I could not find my glasses anywhere - I searched everywhere but finally gave up and resorted to buying a new pair.

Then on my way home from the optometrist, I bought supplies at the supermarket to keep my brain motivated during the big editing session, but my card got declined at the check out so that was the end of that.

I came to the conclusion that this was not the day to be sending out my book.

Friday: Well FINALLY I sent off my first draft. It should now be in London along with a gift basket full of Kiwi goodies - this is not a form of bribery, but simply a way of gaining the attention of a very successful agent (pray it works please!).

Now all I have to do is WAIT and WAIT!

Almost Finished

I know I have been out of touch lately, but this is ACTUALLY a good thing because I have been busy writing THE BOOK!

In fact, I am hopefully a week away from sending off my manuscript to agents - YIPPEE!

I have just booked a 2 day course at the University of Auckland called 'The Nuts & Bolts of Writing'. Probably should have done this BEFORE I wrote the book!
