We saw the movie The Fighter yesterday and it was absolutely fantastic! Christian Bale and Melissa Leo totally deserve Oscar nods. Keep in mind, all the performances were stellar, but those two actors really stood out and that was not easy considering the cast. Let me tell you, I was on the edge of my seat during the fight scenes and I have not gotten that excited during a film in a very long time. I love it when Hollywood delivers, thanks to Mark Wahlberg's persistence. Yes, we have a very fine film out there people, oh we sure do.
My query letter has just been sent to another agent. It is sort of a weird process. I look at who the agency has published then review the photos and backgrounds of the agents and hope I choose right. I may work on making the letter more concise depending on the response I get. Apparently I have a two week window if she is even interested. I can appreciate that and I believe agents get back to you quicker then HR departments and normal business correspondence. HAHAHAHA! Yeah, note my nervous laugh everyone. Ah hell, who am I kidding? I am excited too, this is like an adrenalin rush in a way and I welcome it.
Newest book I picked up at library today is called Dogtown: Death and Enchantment in a New England Ghost Town by Elyssa East. Never heard of it until I saw it displayed at the library. It looked very intriguing and I like the sound of the actual history. I also feel it may be a little inspirational for an idea I have for another story. My ideas are lovely and flow with ease, written in a notebook. It is finding the one that can be executed into a 75K plus novel that is not always a straight path. More importantly is finding a damn good book to enjoy. Not always easy.
Well back to work I go. The Archangels need their story completed in this second novel of mine.
