No longer scribbling alone!
Looking forward to this weekend very much. I won't mind much if my work is not what anyone's looking for - nor if it dawns on me that I'm not the writer I'd like to be. Just the opportunity to participate in workshops and to be surrounded by other people facing the same demons as I am, is grand by me.
Meanwhile - these 1:1s. I've chosen an agent and a book-doctor/publisher and am happy with my choice. Here's the rub - I'll try, but I doubt I'll even finish my first draft of 90k words although I'm on 65k now. So, I wouldn't normally even approach an editor, let alone an agent at this point. Is anyone else in the same boat? I'm wondering whether to be frank up-front in my query letter, or tack it on apologetically at the end 8-)
I confess to embarrassment that it took me a year to get this far!
