Week in Short

Happy Friday! I just had yesterday off and I already feel like I need a vacation. :) So glad it's the weekend...

Before I take a look back at the week, I have a video, Twilight: Modern Warfare 2 trailer. Don't worry, it's funny.

MR this week is Querytracker's post on nudging agents.

In the News this week:
Moonrat is hosting a Write-a-Thon from February 5th to the 8th! I'm thinking about participating.

Also, the new iPad has been released. If you don't know what it is, you'll have to go to Google because the only thing I know about it is that it might reshape publishing as we know it (what else is new?) and is like a giant iPhone that doesn't make calls.

Adventurous Writer talked about fear of success in writers and how to overcome it this week.

BookEnds explains what to do when writing and querying series.

Elana has an AWESOME post on query first and las lines.

GLA answers 10 query questions and gathers 5 articles on mystery writing.

Pimp My Novel explains mentioning awards in queries and PSA.

Pub Rants shares the opening pages of Shifter and Speak that caught Kristin's attention. I want them both. Now.

Rachelle Gardner explains how to become an agent or editor.

I have good news on the writing front this week! After deciding to trunk everything but one WIP (Jump) so that I could put my full effort towards her, I set to work on revisions this week and finished them yesterday! Jump is now in my beta's hands and I'm trying to decide which project to turn my attention to while I wait for the comments to get back. :) Right now it's a toss-up between starting Destiny's rewrite or ARML's revisions. Or the SNI I had last week from a dream. It was the first dream I ever remember that actually had a plot and fully-formed characters.

In honor of Jump's revision completion, I have a Wordle :D
Wordle: Jump

In reading news this week, I'm now up to 4 books. Still way behind, but catching up slowly but surely. I finished a beta project for a writer friend and also Wake (which, I swear, is even better the second time). This weekend I'm planning on finishing Wuthering Heights and Fade, plus maybe another beta project.

That's all I've got this week! Have a great weekend and we'll see you on Monday :)
