Queries and Pitches and Agents ...Oh My!

So, I 've been carousing the blogs, checking out all the pitch contest and having a blast I might add. I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting new authors and immersing myself in my craft. I have gained a wealth of information and learned a few lessons in the process.

Unfortunately all this fun has wreaked havoc on my word count. I haven't actually written anything on my current WIP but all has not been a waste. I have outline and  mapped out a short story that I will turn into a novel for nanawrimo (which I am ubber excited about). So I have been busy just not working on my novel.

Don't get me wrong, it has not been from a lack of trying. I don't know if it's because I am so excited about my new ms or I'm too engaged in all the blog hops.

All the distractions only added to my issues on my current wip, which thanks to an awesome CP  Stacey I think I have finally hashed out my issues (or blog hopping...just kidding) and am all to excited to kick my writing into high gear.

So I said all that to say, although I have been having mountains of fun with all the great contest happening ( did I say I haven't been able to participate, because my book is just a wip, but I was able to host and critique you know the other meat and potatoes). I am going on contest hiatus to try and finish my wip and gear up for nano. After Get Your Pitch On is over I will go from blog hopper to blog wall flower.

Has any of you participated in any contest? Will you be doing nanawrimo? If so let's be buddies 

Thanks for stopping by and listening to my rantings... as always don't be a strange

Awe, glad you found my brainstorming helpful. Don't worry about pulling out of the contest and bloghop circuit, I plan to do the same while Nano is on. 1500 words per day level no room for mucking about! Good luck with the WIP.

Thank you Stacey, I know you're right no mucking around ( I love this) I'm clearing my brain early...:)

Sorry, just found your comment on my blog -- I know I'm slow. I've been doing the Haunted Writing Clinic and have not done a lick on my WIP either, but I have learned lots about writing a query. It's been fun, frustrating, and so very informative.
Thanks for stopping by way back when. I'll be doing NaNo, so support will be needed.

Good luck, and nice meeting you via IWSG, even a little late.

Hi Yolanda,
I am so glad you stopped by, as I have visited a lot of blogs over the last month or so. I couldn't remember yours or what IWSG is, so I stopped by your blog. I still don't remember
:( however I love meeting new people and I am so glad we met even if it is by happenstance. Welcome and please don't be a stranger
