Now This Is All Me


Excuse me whilst I put on a lil mood music.


*dances*
 *sings along with song::
  lights turn on and dark turns outside,
blindside, dream big, you're next in line, it's plain
now this is all me, now this is all me*

Well, hey there.
I bet you're asking yourself,
Self, what's Ang up to?
And why the dance party?

Truth be told, 
every day is a dance party 'round here,
however, 
on this day,
 I have a most excellent reason for 
flailing about like a loon.
I have officially finished my third draft of Fluff & Nonsense.
Lines have been edited,
characters have been straightened out,
plot holes ain't so holey,
adverbs have been cut ruthlessly,
dialogue tags are respectable saids & askeds,
in general,
it be a book.
 
What's up next?
Well, good ole Ang here,
(and you always know someone means 
bizness when they break out in the third person speak)
needs to put on her big girl pants,
write a few query letters,
and *gulps*
send them out to agents.

I know I'm heading toward rejection.
Shhhhh... 
Don't take that statement the wrong way.
It's a fact. I will be rejected.
I'm actually looking forward to it.
I'm ready to earn my battle scars.
Ready to see if I'm one crap-shoot away from winning big. 

I also know my wee lil story isn't perfect.
More edits will be made.
More of my soul, time, and energy shall be poured into it.
But I think after a year of writing,
a year filled with the good, the bad, and the ugly,
it's time to take a leap of faith 
and see if we can cap this year off with a bang.
*crosses fingers*
 
For now,
please excuse me whilst I dance.
And feel free to join me!
*tosses sprinkles & sparkles in the air*
*twirls*

Hey, you. Yeah, you. You know you've got something to say. I'd love to know what it is. So just type in the little white box and let's talk. Don't be shy. I swear I don't bite.
