working at home

Oof. Well, there are really good and really awful aspects to working at home. On the good days, like Monday and Tuesday of this week, I think a lot about how lucky I am to be a full-time research student in England, with tons of flexibility and time to think and write. Today's a bad day. Lonely. Blank. LONG. The solution, of course, is to get productive. I spent a while online chasing up submission info from a few new agents (for Dark Talent) and (a first for me) publishers. I'm going to start submitting Sensible Sorcery to a few English markets, I think....I'm still waiting to hear back from one American agent on it, so I'm wary of blocking off any potential American agented markets. But as far as England goes...Scholastic UK, here I come!

Good Books I'm reading:

Walk Two Moons, by Sharon Creech--I'd heard about this YA novel several years ago, when it started winning awards, but I only started reading it today. Wow. The narrator has a wonderful, absolutely believable voice, funny and precocious and sad, and the plot is really compelling. Huge recommendations!

Written on the Body, by Jeanette Winterson. Wonderful, lyrical language, in an adult novel about love and complex relationships. Everything I've read by Jeanette Winterson has been great, and this is no exception. Even apart from the story itself, I'd enjoy this just for the beautiful language.

See? I'm doing lots of work. Really!
