I still have not heard anything about my query letter (for those who have asked!) but it has not even been a week. I am prepared for a long process! I actually went back and re-read the query letter and I hate it - so, back to the drawing board anyway! I think that the query letter has been more complicated than writing the 80,000+ page book!
On a totally unrelated note, my daughter finished Kindergarten today and her grade card (I don't recall having a grade card in Kindergarten, but her whole experience has been different than I remember) is wonderful! My kiddo is reading well above her grade level with test scores to match. I am so very proud of her. So today's post is in honor of my Peanut ~
Autumn: "Mommy, when you are done with your book, I mean really done with pictures and everything, I will take it to my school and read it to my class."
Me: "Well Peanut, I do not really think that your class is ready for my book. Besides, there are not really going to be pictures in my book."
Autumn: "Well Mommy, I don't think many kids will like it so I don't know who you are going to sell it to."
Me: "Peanut, I am not writing the book for kids. Big people do not have to have pictures in their books."
Autumn: "Mommy, I think you are making a big mistake. Big people work and do not have time to read but kids are on summer vacation and have a lot of time to read. You need to be smart about this Mommy."
Me: "Thank you Peanut, I will consider what you said."
Autumn: "Good Mommy because you need to make a lot of money on this so we can go to Harry Potter World."
Me: "I will see what I can do Peanut."
I am just proud that I was able to keep a straight face. She was so very serious.
