This week in writing includes 2200 new words and one chapter edited. It also includes several queries sent, a couple rejections received, and a foray into submitting one of my other books to a publisher (who I just learned has an open call going on).
Most of the week was spent working on the first days of 11th grade, wherein we're doing a crash (4 hours a day for the next 9 weeks) course in Psychology. So far, it's been working pretty good. Oh, and when I haven't been teaching or working, I've been reading. The trip out of town gave me plenty TBR books to choose from (and unfortunately plenty to do instead of working).
The coming week marks the time to gently nudge the agent who's had a full for two months. We'll see how that goes. It also means I need to get my ever-widening ass in gear and send out another round of queries. You can't win if you don't play. Right?
Now, for the answers to yesterday's quotes:

I'll be back tomorrow for the Saturday Super Site, and Sunday I'll actually do a book review again.
Have a great weekend and a productive week, y'all.
