The untitled post

I'm short on posts lately. I actually attempted to email one in the other day, but it was returned undeliverable. Apparently I need to check my email-post settings. You didn't miss much.

Ah well. Here's the scoop: I did not final in the Gateway to the Best. In fact, two authors took all 3(4)...apparently there was a tie for 3rd...slots in Contemporary romance. Bummer. I haven't seen my scores yet, and I'm hoping for some good comments.

So, to celebrate my lack of success, I mailed out 5 queries last night. Emailed, of course. I have two agents on my list that don't admit to wanting e-queries, and they're at the bottom of the list.

So, onward to the rejection stage.

And NaNoWriMo. My brain has been working furiously on characters and scene snippets. And I think I want to set myself up a Wiki for some world building, as there will be more details to manage. I tried TiddlyWiki, but am not in love. I shall have to look up some other options--I think there was even a link to a post about world building with Wiki's on Paperback Writer several months back. That ought to give me something to do for the next 36 hours till NaNo (as if Halloween parties weren't enough to keep me busy...)

(Update...I posted this thing with no title. So, just to screw with everyone's RSS readers, I'm updating it with a title. An oh, so original one.)
