I know there’s no guarantee, and I really shouldn’t be cocky about it or anything, but fuck it, I’m like 90% sure it’ll get published. I undertook this one idea that I had for a story because I knew it could sell and form a good solid foundation for a writing career for me. Plus, I’m proud of what I wrote. It’s got a lot more than just the mystery of Anastasia and the Romanovs to sell it.
Apparently, the first one was swamped when I sent her the manuscript, that’s why I didn’t hear back. That’s understandable, but a message saying “this might take a while because I’m swamped.” would have been nice.
Anyway, things *should* be moving again.
at least i hope so.
So, I never heard back from the editor that Agent recommended. Seriously, up until I sent the manuscript off, everything seemed all professional and fine and moving along, and then I never ever heard back. I emailed twice asking what was going on, and I didn’t even get a “sorry, but I can’t undertake this project right now for personal reasons” or anything. So Agent as said that she’ll look for another editor in my price range. O_O I’m going to chalk this up to just being bizarre and hope that things will get moving ance again. On the bright side, I did get to add to some scenes in ways that hopefully made them better. I hope, anyway.
And not because I love the books and I’m super-excited about the movie (although that’s vary very true).
It’s the revolution/riot feels.
Yeah ever since learning about the circumstances of the Russian Revolution and trying to write two riot scenes (one of which basically got cut out), seeing riot scenes anywhere just makes me HNNNNNNNG with feels. I love them because they are so fucking hard to write. Yeah, in the riot scene that I kept, Ilya is blundering around going “omg wtf am I doing I’m going to die” because I was thinking the exact same thing.
Masked protesters + police brutality + burning things =
