This Writing Gig

I managed to squeeze in a bit of writing time at work yesterday. Never fear, I finished all my work first. *grin*

Decided to keep sending out query letters for my novel. I think I can fix the little problem I had in the manuscript, so Rene and I worked on my query letter. And I hereby dub her the QUERY QUEEN. Why, you ask? Because after she rearranged my letter, I emailed it to three agents.

Can you see me jumping up and down in excitement?

I plan on being very busy this weekend!!!
