Nice Surprise

I got a call today from an agent who has my full ms. We spent quite a while on the phone -- he asking questions about where I envisioned my book fitting (re: marketing/pitching), listening to my answers, then asking more good questions. He gave me his impressions of my book, and we talked about what changes I might be willing to make. At this point, I'm not sure if I understand fully, but it was very constructive conversation. And it was a pleasure to "meet" this agent and come away with good feelings. We've agreed to talk again. What an unexpected good thing. Wow. Stuff happens.

And after your low point the other day, this is especially wonderful! Good luck and congratulations!

Dear Alicia: Thanks! It was an unexpected thing. I know better than to let the ups and downs get to me, but I think in the midst of all the other stuff that I've had to deal with over the last 5 years, I'm probably hyper-emotional -- always waiting for the next incoming!! It's a good thing this blog has a "delete" key for the posts I write, because while it can feel great to vomit out my feelings, I don't necessarily want those vomited feelings sitting around for future viewing!

Dear M: Thanks! It was an unexpected thing. Now if I could just wrap my brain around the changes we talked about!
