July #IWSG: Summer and My Great Expectations





OPTIONAL IWSG Day Question: What are your ultimate writing goals, and how have they changed over time (if at all)?

Co-Hosts: Nicki Elson, Juneta Key, Tamara Narayan, and Patricia Lynne!





My ultimate writing goals stay the same: agent + book deal + bestseller list. Ha. A girl can dream. Last month I landed in the agent round of Query Kombat. I am pleased to say my middle grade mystery got the second highest amount of requests!! Now I wait. Always waiting. 

This week I am on vacation in the great cheese state of Wisconsin, visiting family and enjoying the great outdoors. Yes, you can actually step outside here and not get your face melted off. Oh, how I've missed my home state---in the summer. Not so much in the winter! 

I hope everyone has lofty writing goals and great expectations! Have a fantastic rest of summer.

  3. That's so great on your middle grade mystery :) It's hot here too in Kansas City. We actually had a day in the 80's this week though but back to hot temperatures today. I bet Wisconsin is beautiful right now.

  8. That's wonderful your story has done well so far.

    I visited Wisconsin once and I fell in love with The House on the Rock. I'd love to see it again.

  13. Have a great vacation. I hear it's been hot. Not so much for us... yet. But it's coming soon.

    I'm sure you're going to have an agent bidding war :)

  14. Same pinch, my ultimate goals are the same "agent + book deal + bestseller list."

    Fingers crossed that you get an agent soon.

  15. Query Kombat...sounds intense. Writing queries is so painful for me. It's just about as bad as coming up with a descriptive blurb. Ugh!
