My eyes are buggin' out of my head.
I'm done with editing, but not done with hyperventilating.
Last week, when I saw the light at the end of the tunnel, I sent out three queries. Thought it would be great motivation to finish, which it was. I didn't want to get on the query train, but I did need this motivation (in addition to the koala smackdown). One came back a prompt 'no.'
Then the Hotmail server went down (at least for me.) Couldn't access email for 2 days (Stop before you laugh and imagine....) Then hotmail came back on--for an hour--just in time for me to see that an agent did request my ms.
But Hotmail is back down again.
Imagine if I hadn't seen that request? That days or even weeks went by, me not editing seriously and trying to avoid the koala.
So I've been at the computer for more hours than I can count, and I'm finished. I actually feel quite pleased with the story, and will get on that query train next week.
I'm also on Gmail now. firstname.lastname@example.org
Gmail allows you to import contacts. But first I have to open Hotmail to retrieve them. ahem.
Will collect my luvvies one by one next week.
For now, I'm going to go stare at the television....
