Happy Halloween! Time for candy and...less blogging?

Hope all of you that are heading our to trick or treat or party till the wee hours of the morning have a great Halloween. I'll be enjoying it with my toddler who can really only eat lollipops thanks to his allergies, which means Mommy gets all the chocolate. Bad for him, good for me!

I'm also planning on taking a little break from blogging to get my revisions done, prepare for all the great stuff we are doing with, and of course the New Moon chaos. I've really been slacking with my posts and tweets anyway so I figured I better just say I am unplugging for a bit. I thought about participating in NaNo but with my revisions and the holidays approaching I feel its best to to stick what I'm doing and get my query whipped into shape. Something I'm very excited about since I had a great critique from Joanna Stampfel-Volpe thanks to her incredible generosity to critique the first ten queries she received from readers of Lisa & Laura's blog last week. How awesome is she for doing that? So now I'm armed with an agent's feedback on what's working and what needs help in my query. I am one lucky little writer.

I'm still trying to read all the blogs I follow and comment when I can, but I'm really determined to kick some butt and wrap up these hard core revisions in the next few weeks. I'm thinking this is probably good timing since so many of you are doing NaNo which means you won't be blogging as much either. Good luck to all of you who are taking part. I look forward to hearing how it goes since I plan on doing it next year.

Glad to hear you have a plan of action. A professional critique is on the top of my priceless list.

I hope everything goes well for you.

Happy writing!
