What's the word? Weekend #49

It's time for What's the Word? Weekend number forty-nine!  :)

I know it's technically Monday where I am...but it's still Sunday on the west coast, haha!
So let's take a look at this weekend's news:

The Bad News:  
I decided to query a few newer agents that I found on QueryTracker. Many of them have rejected me. So, I think I'm officially going to try going the indie publishing route! Oh and also, the publisher I submitted to on October 1st was a pass (through no response).

The Good News: 
I submitted to another new publisher I found! And I'm still waiting to hear back from a few others. One of them (my top choice as of now) had a typical 6-8 week wait time, and I submitted to them on September I'll be at the five week mark this Tuesday! So close, yet so far.

In other news:
The reason I was late in posting this was that I just came back from the first collegiate taekwondo tournament of the new season! It was great because I got to cheer on both my old team and my new team! The bad news: me and one other senior blue belt on my team were a two person team (and for those of you who don't know, you usually want to have three people on your team, because you need two out of three teammates to win their matches so that you can advance). The good news: We got silver! I feel really bad though: my teammate won all her matches (she kicked serious butt!), while I lost my first (but I didn't need to win), won my next two, and then lost my last match (which was the finals). The girl who beat me was for sure good, but the judging, not so much---they definitely didn't give me some points that I deserved. But oh well, sometimes it goes your way and sometimes it doesn't.

Well, that's all for this weekend folks! Until next time! :)
