I sent in my first query yesterday. I don't expect to get a book deal, but I am hoping to get some constructive criticism. Now, I just have to wait and see if she requests some pages for review. I'm trying to tell myself that won't happen, but I have a little inkling of hope that she will. Just in case, I started editing last night.
However, in correcting my grammar and adjusting the tenses, I feel like I might be sacrificing some of the original tone. I saved the edited version as a new version just in case I need to go back and pull some pieces from the original. I'm still not exactly sure how to properly annotate internal thoughts. I also changed the name of one of the main characters so they don't rhyme anymore.
I won't have time to work on it tonight though, the boys and I have band practice for our gig on Saturday!
