The Happiness Project :: Finally Querying for a Literary Agent


My husband and I have a tradition 
when we want to share good news.

We open a bottle of champagne in the kitchen
and wait for the other to be called in by the "pop".
When they come rushing from
wherever they are in the house,
we share the news.

So, I recently popped open a bottle
because I finally reached a point
where my manuscript was ready to query agents.

It's been a long process.
As you can see, I last celebrated
finishing the first draft
in Nov 2013.

This is a big step.
I should probably not shout it from the rooftops 
and be all professional as I wait to hear back
but I am an open book
(pun intended)
and I just had to share.

So...4 agents are currently reading the full manuscript
and I'm just waiting to pop open the next bottle
and write 
"LANDED AN AGENT"
 on it and perch it on my dirty window sill
so I can gaze upon it when I load the dishwasher.

I'll keep you posted.
This part of the journey
is crucial in my plan
to overtake the literary world.

Mwahahaha!





Want to join me in my quest
to scout out happiness in our lives?
Simply post a photo of something that
makes you wildly happy and tell us all about it.
