Highlights of my day:

Firstly, I learnt that the YA market is flooded with Angel stories and that right now very few agents are taking on clients with this sort of manuscript … And the story that I have been working/crying/bleeding over for TWO years is a what now?  *drum roll* A YA story about Angels … for the love of all that is holy!!

Upside: maybe this pretty pile of rejections that I’ve been collecting in my mailbox isn’t a reflection on my writing abilities – I’ll take that.

Conclusion: time to write a comprehensive guide to Thimble Collecting.

The second thing … you know that scene in Three Men and A Little Lady, when Sylvia’s cooking breakfast and she’s trying to tip that congealed mess of porridge out of a pan? That was me this morning. This morning I cooked a vat load of porridge into a crap-tastic pile of solidness, that I then had to spend the following few hours trying to scrape out of a pan.

Upside: the family won’t be so quick to ask me to make breakfast again.

Conclusion: Hollywood is closer to real life than I first  thought.

P.S… Thanks for all the blog love you’ve been throwing my way 🙂

P.P. S…  At some point tomorrow I’ll be posting my review of The Pledge by Kimberly Derting.
