That means I can finally say that this sucker is D-O-N-E done at 88k. Now I'll just be editing and revising as I work through it with my betas. And I'm facing down the super fun task of writing the query letter and synopsis. I'm hoping to have a query letter at least drafted before I leave for RWA Nationals next week, so that when I come home (with my head chock full of information and the agents I want to query), I'll have something to work with.
On the flipside, I'm hoping that I don't come home after going to all those workshops and want to change everything about the book, lol. Sometimes too much information can be dangerous. :) But we'll see.
So, hopefully I'll be entering the query wars soon. It's been a while, so I'm looking forward to it. I just want to make sure everything is ready to go before I hit send. I've learned the hard way that you need to have everything all set before querying. My first novel, I received a full request one week after querying and they wanted a synopsis. So I don't ever want to be rushing like that again.
How is your WIP going? Have you ever gone to a workshop that made you want to change everything about your story? Is anyone else going to RWA Nationals next week?
