Kids are asleep. Glass of wine has been poured. Fire is crackling in the fireplace.  And I’m reveling in the excitement of the week. I didn’t make it through to the final round of Pitchmadness, and I’m okay with that. I got a request for the first 50 pages of my MG Fantasy last week. This morning I found an unexpected email in my inbox requesting the full manuscript. And, the agent who critiqued my pitch at WriteOnCon voted for my pitch as her favorite. What did I win? A full critique of my manuscript. Talk about amazing! I’m so excited. Waiting is so worth it, and so tough. Hopefully my patience and hard work will be rewarded. Lawd knows I’m ready.
