         So far I have 19364 words, which puts me ahead of the game. Required words per day is only 1,226 if you want to complete a manuscript of 50,000 words by November 30th.  I could be done as early as November 16th if I keep at this rate.  I usually write a chapter before I stop for the day unless I am in the groove and I am able to write more.  When editing comes around, I hope there are mininal mistakes I have to work with.  This is fun, I wonder if there is a Query writing site out there. I need to work on that, that is the hardest part of pitching your work to an agent or a publishing company. Hooking them in with as little as 300 words or less when your manuscript is 50,000 words or more. Yikes.
         When I first sent out my query letters for my Immortal Island series Spellbound book one, I think it was almost a page long. Then I met this girl online who was a slush reader for an agent and she was offering free advice on your query letter. I did mine and it was definitly way to long and I had stuff that wasn't important and the hook wasn't grasping enough. I was able to do it twice more before she wasn't going to do repeats from one person. Eventually I got my query letter for Immortal Island down to 187 words which included introduction of myself and the thanks at the end. My actual pitch was 83 words of that 187 lol. Not an easy task.  This time around I plan to make sure the hook is a good one and that it starts off my query.  I really like this new story and the fact that it took me only two weeks to write 50,000 words surprised me. Other stories took months without editing.  I love it when it flows and you are always thinking about it always dreaming about it.  I really Hope Hard To Love will make it in print out there in the publishing world. If not I will self publish again. It was fun donig that as well. A lot more work because it is not on teh shelf of big books stores or any store for that matter its all online like amazon, barnes and nobles, smashwords kobo etc.

         Until next time, have a great day and enjoy the warm November weather.
