It was a cold and snowy day!

It's cold and snowy here, but that's January in New York for you.  This week has gone by quite quickly.  I started back with my walking (a bit more consistently) and am doing the 100 push-up routine.  (I am at level one, and resort to girlie push-ups as I do not have the ability yet to do normal ones-- my goal is to be able to do at least 1 real push up by the time I'm done with this routine.)

I worked on my query letter following the worksheets from Elana Johnson.  They are a great help, so if you are having problems, be sure to check out her book From the Query to the Call.  It's a great resource.  Trisha and I exchanged comments on it last night, and I have some more work to do, but I feel like I am getting closer.

For those of you who might have missed it, WriteOnCon is having a chat Monday, January 24 at 5 PM.  Holly McGhee, Elena Mechlin, and Joan Slattery of Pippin Properties, Inc. will be there to discuss query writing do’s and dont’s and what they’re looking for!  Hope to see you there!

Have a great Thursday!


  1. Ohh thanks for the WriteOnCon info. I totally would have missed it. BTW, your query is off to a great start!

  2. Oh, thanks for the alert about the WriteonCon chat - I would have missed it:)

  3. Mary, thank you for spreading the word about the WriteOnCon chat.

    I hope you get your query whipped into shape soon. I love Elana's book!

  4. Glad I you all stopped by to learn about the WriteOnCon chat.

    Casey- I have found Elana's book one of the most helpful on query writing that I have read.


Thanks for dropping by. I love reading comments and will respond by e-mail as soon as possible.
