The Waiting Game

Hello there!

The querying process has begun! Well, sort of. I've only sent out a handful so far, but the results have been positive! So, while my novel is being considered by agents, I've been keeping myself BIZ-AY.

Well, that's kind of a lie. I've done this:

            Meet my characters, Scott Parker and April Fletcher! 

Torn apart by April's tragic death in 1729, Scott has been rendered immortal by fate, while April has been given the gift of reincarnation. 

Which would be really helpful if April didn't have the same predetermined expiration date in each life.

Oh, I do miss my characters! But I think my critique partners would have poked my eyes out if I'd spent any longer tweaking this novel.

So, what else have I been up to, you ask? STUDYING. At least, I should be studying. I returned to university a couple of weeks ago to complete a Master of Education (Middle and Secondary) in Science. Yes. Crazy, I know. She, who has a fear of public speaking, is destined to get up in front of 20-30 people all day, every day, and talk. *gulp* But hey! People need to know science, right? If only I could remember something from my initial degree ...

*clears throat*

So there you have it. While I'm waiting to hear back from agents, I'm making collages of my characters instead of learning about learning. The irony! Throw in two small children, my TBR pile, Revenge, House, Homeland, Supernatural, Misfits, and a new laptop, and I have all the procrastination tools I need to get me through the waiting game.

What about you? What have you been up to lately? What books have you read that I can add to my procrastination TBR pile? Any TV shows you'd recommend?
