Inventory of progress made this week:
My query letters are complete, mailing labels printed, SASEs stamped and waiting. I still need to print what's to be included with the query letters, like table of contents, sample chapters, etc. What I place into those large yellow envelopes matters; this painful step I'll tackle next week. I look forward to holding the sealed packages in my hands; this is rewarding, a tension release. I try not to think of how fast rejections will come in relation to the amount of time I spend on each package.
I'll prepare my email queries next week.
Half Italian is complete, but over the weekend I'll continue to proofread for readability. Books too wordy can bug.
