I Have Made a Decision

OK, school has taken a lot of time away from writing. I have a class where I have a test every week. Study, study, study.

But that doesn't mean there's not a story in the works.

I've had a lot of stories lately that I've been trying to develop and the minute I think they are going to work, they come crashing down. Not permanently, but you know what I mean. :)

Anyway, there is a story that I am going to be working on though. I don't have time to develop a story, but this one doesn't need it. It's already got a beginning, middle, and end and it's already complete! The drawback?

I wrote it when I was twelve years old.

The story is called The Search for Grey Sky. I wrote this before I got into fantasy. It's a story about a girl and her horse, named Grey Sky, of course. I had a lot of fun writing it and it is a good story, so I'm going to revamp it and make it sound better and more mature, because it's def not ready for submission right now!

Speaking of submissions, I am still querying the crap out of Khaladin. No takers yet, all rejections. But there's a lot of agents out there so I think there's still a pretty good chance. And if not, I love Khaladin so much that I will shelve it for a couple years and when the agencies have had more than enough time to forget about me (this is assuming I stay unpublished) I will submit him again. You guys know me...I never give up! :)

Sorry Madison, I haven't been reading your blogs in a while because I have been caught up in schoolwork (you know what I mean...), anyway,I'm glad you "have made a decision!"

Thanks, Connor! Great to hear from you! :D

But keep writing, too, my friend. If you're anything like most other published writers, you'll probably have to get thoroughly rejected on a couple of projects, before one hits.

Yeah, I've gotten let's see, including Khaladin, 1, 2, 3... 4 manuscripts rejected. Khaladin is still being queried, two are on the shelf temporaraly, and the last is on there permanently. And of course I will keep writing! :)
