Life/Writing Update

I haven't reported on my progress in a while. That's probably because I don't feel like I'm moving forward with the actual writing at the moment. Life has been too crazy. Days go by where I feel lucky to get 1-2 hours in my house. It feels like I'm running all over the place. Oh, well. School will start the end of August and then I can get back to writing.

The good news is I did start querying again. I'm sending them out slowly. Taking my time to research and really think about each agent before I send that email or letter.

I've sent 5. Yeah, I know, but read above again. I have had two partial requests, one pass, and two no news yet. I feel like that's pretty darn good! Something is definitely working better this go around. I have three more agents researched and the queries written. All I  need to do is print everything off and buy some envelopes so I can mail them.

In other news, I'm in week 2 of my marathon training. Week one was good--except the long run didn't happen. Yeah, the most important part! I had a five hour training meeting on Saturday and by the time I was done running had fallen off the To-do list. (I really hope these extra pounds start melting away!)

So, this week is:
Monday--run 3 miles check
Tuesday--run 5 miles
Wednesday--run 3 miles
Thursday--cross train
Friday--run 5 miles
Saturday--run 10 miles
Sunday--rest (LOL, obviously these people don't go to my church!)

What's going on in your lives--other than writing? Tell me, I really want to know.
