I Fail at Blogging

Remember that whole, “I’ll try to post at least once a month” thing?  Yeah, neither do I.  Well, I stink at blogging.

Whatever.

Here’s an update on my writing adventures:  After an extensive revision, I started querying my second YA novel in earnest.  I’m only just getting started so I don’t have much to report, but this MS got a full request from a Twitter pitch event last year and I hope that wasn’t just a fluke.  Yes, the full request ended in rejection, but that’s still better than all the silence and form rejects I got the last time I queried.  However this turns out, I’m still making progress.  Slow progress, but I’ll take it.

In the meantime, I’m revising a MG contemporary.  I finished the first draft last year and finally got it out again.  I’m excited about this one, but it needs more work in the details.  I’ve had several beta readers give feedback and it’s been fairly positive and helpful.  If all goes well and I work hard, I think I can have it ready to query by the end of the summer.
