It's only been a few days since my agent sent out a few more proposals for The Race that Lies Before Us, and he's already received a request for the full manuscript! Of course, we're well into the Christmas season and editors are trying to clean off their desks, but the editor said she would be starting to read newly requested manuscripts after the first of the year.

While there is no guarantee that the editor will actually offer me a contract, I am celebrating the fact she liked what she saw. Writing is such a solitary journey, with so many rejections along the way, that it's worth celebrating any affirmation.
