Hit me or something

I need a big kick in the rear! I've got to get some more queries out, and I'm just not doing it.

I've had encouraging responses to my earlier submissions, and need to keep trying!

There's no reason not to, so what's keeping me from it?

  • Fear.

  • Insecurity.

  • The fact that submitting seems to severely hamper my ability to do new writing.

Okay, I guess I do have a few reasons. But they're pretty lame reasons; they shouldn't stop me.

I've used this blog before to get my act in gear. Something about declaring my intentions publically seems to make a difference. So I'm going to see if it helps with the query process.

I will send out more queries. Oh yes. I will send out more queries.*

*Picture Wayne Campbell saying this as he rubs his hands together intently, and you'll know the tone I'm going for here.

Happy Groundhog Day!

Did he see his shadow where you live? Don't know here yet. It's still dark!

Unfortunately the official groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, did see his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of winter. Wah!

Good writing weather, at least.

I just spent far too long trying to find a groundhog photo to add to this entry, but I give up! Instead here's a link to Phil's official page, which is Groundhog.org of course.
