Why I can't sleep at night.....
On iTunes: "The Show" by Lenka
The one thing my friends and family (as well as the teachers in elementary school...and math class) have always said is that I am too much of a dreamer. I am not realistic...yadda, yadda, yadda. I may not be, but I've got dreams, damn it!!
My current dream is that I will work like a dog for the next three months (not a dream...I will be working for the next three months), I will have a perfect manuscript that everyone raves about and the perfect query letter that will catch an agents attention. I get a call from Jodi Reamer within the month saying she has read my first three chapters and is very impressed and wants to see more. Within a month of sending her my full, she wants to sign me!! (After a few revisions of course.)
After months of revisions and pushing, I get "THE CALL" saying a huge publishing house wants to buy my first novel.....and subsidiaries and movie rights are being discussed!!!
This......is why I don't sleep at night. I am fully aware that this is the ultimate dream, and most likely things will be significantly different. I am going for Jodi Reamer first, though. I've loved almost every book she's agented. "The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things" by Carolyn Mackler was HILARIOUS!!!!
Anyways, that is my dream...and I'm stickin' to it. :)
