My Wonder Agent has started reading PoloGRRL! This is exciting to me, and the first original manuscript she's read since POSSUM SUMMER. It's a first, and I'm sure there will be many more, but I was really rather surprised with myself at the range of emotions I felt when I read her short note.
Fear. (What if she doesn't like it??)
Elation. (I did it! She has the next book!)
Sadness. (I did the best I could. What happens if my best wasn't good enough?)
Irritation. (I should have looked it over one more time. Darnit, I should have looked it over one more time!)
But most of all, just a really anticipatory feeling. Waiting to see what she'll think.
And since I didn't get my betas my book yesterday, today is the day I shall do this. Please cross your fingers. :-)
