When I started on this crazy journey I had often found myself daydreaming of "the Box". You know. The box that the mailman delivers to your doorstep that includes copies of my first published book. Yeah. That box.
Of course, there have been obstacles along the way, one of which being that I only have a mailslot at my Brooklyn apartment, so delivering "the Box" will prove difficult for the mailman...unless I write really teeny-tiny books.
But in all seriousness, I am getting closer to "the Box".
My dream is becoming more of a reality.
I am proud to announce that I have an agent. That's right. Santa might not have delivered, but my hardwork, dedication and general talent (don't worry, my head won't get big now) DID DELIVER!
I have signed with Susan Hawk of The Bent Agency.
Needless to say, I am thrilled!
Of course, I now realize that with great power comes great responsibility...or something like that. (thanks, Stan Lee)
No longer is my writing something I just do with my laptop, alone in my apartment or at a local coffeehouse. Nope. As a writer friend of mine said, "it is now an occupation."
Wow! I have an occupation. I am a writer.
And therefore, I have work to do.
In fact, I need to get to some revisions right now.
But I promise you, faithful readers, to share my story of "how I got my agent" next week.
Til then, Happy Writing! Oh, with a little happy dancing to boot!
