Okay, so everyone loves Honor. That's what I'm getting from betas, from readers, from family. Out of two dozen or so people that have read portions or all of it--they've basically become addicts--and many have passed my hard copies off to others to read. People quote from it. No joke. It's bizarre. This may sound conceited, but I'm going with the insanity defense. Honestly, I feel so disconnected from the genius that is Honor because I swear that Honor writes it herself. I just type as fast as her character spills it. I read back through it after the fact and laugh and cry and feel like an insane person for not remembering the bulk of what I wrote or how it made it into the story. Honor is just like that. She is wicked awesome.
So, I just don't know whether to wait until January or query now. I'm excited about Honor again--especially now that I'm almost done with Honor Six. Plus, a few new people (including my Mom) just got the Honor books, and they're all excited about it. That makes me excited.
Should I query now--should I wait? Aargh! I'm thinking of picking like five or six agents and querying them and then being "done" for December. What do you think? Weigh in. Querying in December--bad idea? Enthusiasm for a project should be capitalized on--or stomped down until the holidays are over?
To Query or not to Query--that is the question.
I won't be around for a few hours--I stopped by the church to see how the whole nativity project is going, and Katie, my friend, looked desperate and said, "Please tell me that you're here to help." So, I'm home to take medicine, sneak in this post, and see if I can find our nativities to loan to them. (Usually they have hundreds of nativities, but I think the sign-ups and notifications weren't as well done this year. Everything looked fairly sparse.) Oh... my dog, Nanaimo is out there whining for someone to play with him. Okay, so I'm home to take medicine, write a dog post--no, blog post, and play with my dog. (In a hurry--brain just shut off.)
