But that's not the news I want to tell you of today.
It's just what's setting a lovely, cozy scene as I sit at my kitchen table, coffee in hand, prepping to tell you this news.
The flakes are getting bigger, and I wonder if it will end soon. Sometimes big flakes mean that.
So, the news... I'm thrilled to announce this, but, as you can see, I can't figure out the right lead in, so I'm just gonna shout it at you:
I HAVE AN AGENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My heart just did that weird flip-flop thing it was doing all day yesterday.
Anyway, that's right. Yesterday morning, at right about this same time, I signed an agreement with an agent--with my agent.
I can't begin to tell you how excited--even giddy--I have been the last couple days. I expect this marks the beginning of a wonderful working relationship as well as the continuation of what has been to this point a fabulous journey, even with all its ups and downs.
I am thorougly pleased to now be working with:
Frankie, Donna, and Sara whom I cannot thank enough for their encouragement, support, kicks-in-the-pants, and friendship. Ladies, thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
It seems the snow has stopped for now, but the work is only just beginning--the revision work of course, not the shoveling--so I'm going to sign off.
Have a wonderful weekend wherever you are!
PS: (i have an agent!) Oh, forget the parenthesis. I have an agent!
PPS: Can you tell I'm excited? I hope so. Thanks for reading!
PPPS: Have I mentioned that we keep chickens? Not at our condo, of course, but 5 minutes down the road at my mother's, we keep seven hens. They lay beautiful eggs for us. Can you believe it?--It's Hen&ink, and we keep chickens! Could this be any more perfect?!?!
