Playing Catch-up: Needed a breather

I'm back. For those of you who have been reading, you know that this was the first full week of my new (old) job and also the first week of my condensed, five-week long chemistry class. While I may not have delved into all the subject 'matter' yet, I have come to learn that some elements do not mix: A 9-5 job, a 5:30-10:00 class, freelance writing projects and continuous pitching (which also includes this blog). Oh. And sleep too! Heaven help me! I'm going bezerk. On top of it all, I've developed a cold. I think it is from the AC at work. It is brutally cold in there and it may have been a shock to my system. DayQuil, NyQuil and tissues in tow, I am ready to get down (and back) to business.

So, I slipped a little. I will try not to let it happen again. This first week of this schedule took some adjusting, but I think I can still manage to keep up with everything. July 10, things will be back to normal. So, this weekend I am trying to play catch-up with the days I have missed out on sending queries.

In other news, I did send out the finished manuscript of the children's book. They report back within six months. So that means that between now and December-ish, I will be tackling the mail lady.

Best of luck with your schedule. I really feel for you. I already have a 9-5 but I will be adding on classes in the fall. I'm trying to brace myself.

I feel your pain, but also commend you for churning out queries like there's no tomorrow. Something's bound to happen. You've got ideas flowing out of you like no one's business.
