Well, believe it or not, I have found some sort of renewed energy for my novel. Yes, that's right. My novel. I had a pretty amazing revelation recently about the main character that has given me the ability to go back through page by page from start to finish (something I admit I used to love doing when finalizing a short story, but have never managed with my novel), so that's hopeful. There are a bunch of agenty people who have the previously final version and are reading it, so with any luck, I can replace their dusty old copies with the new one. (Will it never end?)
Also: I was at a party last night and overheard someone talking about being at Mardi Gras a few years ago and seeing a woman wearing a skirt made out of literary rejections. I love that idea. Why haven't we thought of this before, mice? A whole new line of clothing for sale! Rejection Dresses! LROD Skorts! Literary Culottes. Anyway, have a good weekend, everybody.
