I'll make this brief. I'm on vacation. I get to spend a lot of time with my lovely wife :D. I've been getting a lot of writing done, too. And I'm loving it!
I started editing my rewrites yesterday, and I love how they turned out. At this rate, I very well might have an agent by the end of 2012. I can say that I'm confident in my work, both because I enjoy it, and because several people inside the industry have told me that it's good. I believe it's just a matter of time and work.
So now I'm off to finish my late breakfast, then I'm going to get moving on more edits.
