I just checked my list this morning, and I realized I have several unanswered queries. That means I'm going to wait a little bit before I sent out more letters. I just want to get a feel for my responses to see if I need to perform another re-write.
In the meantime, I'm writing another book! I started the outline on Wednesday, and I hope to have an edited, second draft by the beginning of June. I decided not to go with the steampunk idea because with the Flatiron City setting, characters and setting are already created. This way all I need to do is outline the vague story idea I have, and then move forward with writing.
I like where the story is going so far, I just need to figure out what my main character is truly afraid of. And I need to try to reign in any political undertones. And by reign in, I mean I need to make sure that it doesn't get waaaayyyy out of control. I don't have a problem putting politics in my books (though that's not my goal, it just happens sometimes), I just want to make sure that it's done in a way that doesn't insult/alienate half of my potential audience. Even if they will disagree with what some of my characters believe.
That's about all I have for today. I need to get to my outline. I want it finished by Tuesday.
