For today I thought an update on my progress would be in order. From the queries I sent out back in Feb. (15 total) on my first book, I had some partial requests and a full out, but no further interest. I realized the book still needed work from a critique I got in the spring, so I sent no more queries and let them peter out. I've gone back to editing, and the book is back at WIP I status. There have been some significant changes, and I think they've made the story flow much better. I'll send it back out when the edits are done. As for WIP II, I'm rough drafting and working out the "worldbuilding." It's earth (that's why the quotes), but since it's a dystopic, I still think of it as creating a new world/environment. I'm really excited about this one. It is super early in the process, but it has so much potential. Sometimes I want to set the first one aside and work exclusively on WIP II, but for now I'm seeing if I can handle the 2 projects at one time thing. It's actually going okay.
