What's the Word? Weekend #8

Hey guys!

It's time for What's the Word? Weekend numero ocho! :D

So let's take a look at the news I have for this weekend:

The Bad News
One word: rejection. I've gotten a lot of query letter rejections this week, which is never fun, but I know that it's all part of the process. I also got a rejection for a query letter that I sent back at the beginning of December for my first book, which surprised me because I didn't think that agency was going to respond. I still have a few agents who haven't responded about my first book even though they said they would within a month or so (and it's been a few months now), but that's okay.

The Good News:
I got another FULL request yesterday!!!! :D
The request almost made the rejections that I got the same day not sting as much. Now, once I start getting rejections on my fulls, that's when it's really gonna start to hurt A LOT.
But I'm super excited because this agent doesn't request as often as the other two agents that have my fulls, so I can't help but feel special (even if he ends up rejecting it, it's good to know that I have a decent query letter).

In Other News:
I'm finally done with midterms, which means SPRING BREAK for me!!!!! I'm so excited because I finally get to go home (after six straight weeks of being at college doing work, work, and more school work).

And I also want to say Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!! :D

That's all for this weekend folks!

This is my year, this is my time, this is my now.


  1. Wow you're querying and talking about Spring Break! You must be pretty young. That's awesome. I'm in the middle of my first draft of my first novel so I can't wait to hear how the rest of you process goes.

    1. Thanks IAHL! :D

      Good luck with your first draft! I feel like the first draft is usually the hardest one to get through when you have other things going on in your life.

  2. You're so lucky that you get spring break for like six weeks. For a field trip recently, I went to a college for this thing where you perform, submit art and writing, and take different classes. I'm not old enough to actually enter, but I went with my friend and now I know why there weren't any people there! Haha.

    Congratulations on getting that one full request! If the agent doesn't really respond to a lot of queries, then that agent must be really interested! Wishing you the best of luck!

    1. I wish I got spring break for six weeks! It's only a week long. :)

      Haha yeah, quite a few colleges have spring break this week.

      Thanks Eileen! :D
