So, I’m enjoying my customary Thursday afternoon off (hey, they can’t work me all day every day) and finally have time to write another blog entry. Was excited to see that the website has now had 100 hits (I was number 100. Do I get a prize? I think so!) Only about 20 of those are me (checking site status/functionality) which I guess means several people have been checking it out. I hope that all of you like what you see.
Last night, I sent out my new and improved query letter to Ginger Clark, who from what I can tell from my research is a champion for new writers of contemporary fantasy. She comes highly recommended by many of her clients and I eagerly await to see if she is interested in representing Pawn’s Gambit. We will see. Everyone send positive thoughts her way. Who knows? Maybe the guy that wrote The Secret is right and if we think about it hard enough… but I digress.
The writing is stalled out for a moment as I fix commas and other minor grammatical errors in the last three chapters of Pawn’s Gambit, but as soon as that’s done, it’s back to the fray. I may have to flip a coin to see if I continue work on Four Corners or begin the process of bringing The Mussorgsky Riddle to life. Danielle and Anthony are pretty much stuck in Dreamland till I get back to them. I hope they packed a lunch.
Had some interesting stuff in clinic this week. Saw a patient with intractable hiccups, another patient with what I believe is a relatively rare condition called hemochromatosis, and for the first time in my career, saw someone with a copperhead bite. And all on a Wednesday afternoon! Not your usual high blood pressure/diabetes/cholesterol/common cold/etc. that’s for sure. It’s made for a very interesting week. Can’t wait to see what next week brings.
While you’re on the site, check out my new guest book. First person to sign it gets a prize! (The prize is unfortunately the honor of being the first person to sign the guest book.)
That’s all for now. If anyone has any thoughts about the blog, just let me know. I’m open to suggestions!
