Query Land and INSANITY

1. I tend to mimic other individuals wardrobes. I always hope I can pull it off, and never succeed. Apparently I was just born with a quirky personality and not a quirk wardrobe.

2. I love Bravo but recently joined both LOGO and VH1 with their versions of "housewives"... LOGO does gays, and VH1 does Basketball Wives... All so fabulously addicting.

3. I used to be organized, now I'm a writer. My poor husband is tired of picking up book after book, paper after paper with my writing and reading habits! I literally lay stuff everywhere. He's sweet to put up with me.

4. Ive been on the INSANITY challenge for four weeks now, no soda, no candy, just healthy eating and hardcore workouts... I feel like ass.

5. I love holidays and with Halloween around the corner I've already busted out the Halloween paper on my iPhone and will be putting up decorations soon!!

6. An extra!!! Today is the first day of querying! I'm excited and OH SO NERVOUS! Hoping to share awesome news in the next few months! *fingers crossed*

So what are your truths?

Good luck querying! :)

Halloween is way too far to think about! :)

GOOD LUCK JEN!!!! Truths...hmm. I used to be very superstitious when I was younger and still am to some degree. The number three was most superstitious to me. So, if I needed luck, I generally did something in 3's. Like before I served, I bounced the ball 3 times. Weird huh? So, in that vain . . .
GOOD LUCK
GOOD LUCK
GOOD LUCK :)

OMG It's QUERYING DAY!!!!!

You'll have an agent in no time. I'll trade "let's get awesome agents soon" vibes with you.

Re: INSANITY - Can you have diet pop? COffee? (I think I'm going to be forced to do the insanity thing. You know, after the last baby. Because that's a good excuse.)

Clarissa Draper said...

Truth: I feel like ass because I'm not working out and not eating right! Does it ever feel good?

Let us know how the querying goes.

I admire you so much for persevering with Insanity. Me and my boyfriend managed one week, then I went on holiday and we just couldn't face picking it up again.

P.S. I love your blog, it always makes me smile :)

Good luck, Jen!

Good luck with querying!!

Truth: I haven't worked out in over 8 weeks. I feel disgusting. I admire you for doing Insanity. I've heard it's, well...insane!

Bish Denham said...

My your query rock the world of your dream agent.

My truth? The heat and dry (which I'm sure you can identify with) is starting to depress me.

Christa said...

Hooray for querying and good luck, Jen!

Also, I am cracking up about your INSANITY diet. Why, oh why? That's just nuts. No candy???

Carolyn V said...

Woohoo! Good luck with the queries! I used to be organized too, and then the writer bug bit. I don't think my house will ever be the same.

Jessie Harrell said...

Good luck!
I too love Halloween - my kids' costumes have all been ordered already.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

You can do it! And congratulations that you've stuck with the insanity challenge.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

DITTO on everything except #2! Jen, I wish you all of the luck in the world on your querying--we're all here w/ you 100%! :-)

Kathryn Elliott said...

Candy corn is a vegetable in my book. Kick query backside!

Julianna said...

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!
Eat some dark chocolate, it IS good for you...in small amounts.:)

Meredith said...

Yay!!!! Happy query day!!! Sending lots of luck your way. And yay for Halloween being just around the corner!

Lisa Aldin said...

May you be one of those people who only have to query for, like, two weeks before you snag that agent. May the offers come pouring in from Day 1! Good luck!

Nancy Thompson said...

Good luck! Querying can be both exciting and hellish. I wish you the very best!

LTM said...

I used to be more organized and better at keeping up w/people, too!!!

GOOD LUCK w/the querying! Can't wait to hear your awesome news~ <3

li said...

Oh no! Will you be finished with your insanity challenge before the Halloween candy hits the shelves? If not, can I have it?

Good luck with the querying, with all of us crossing fingers and such, surely you'll get a deluge of positive replies and offers! :-)

Nicole Zoltack said...

Good luck with Insanity! I was doing P90X until I found out I was pregnant. Stuck with it another month and then kinda just stopped. Hubby's almost done though (we started it together). He has less than a week and a half to go!

"I feel like ass"
this made my night.

GigglesandGuns said...

Similar post today. Mine are no where good as yours.

E.R. King said...

You're going to rock some lucky agent's world! *High Five*

McKenzie McCann said...

Hmm, my truth? This sounds like fun.

The Google Earth picture of my house was taken on the Fourth of July. We know this because our kiddie pool is in the middle of the street in anticipation of a water fight.

Lyla said...

Good luck on querying! I recently entered the querying trenches, as well. Let's hope that both of our projects will receive lots of love! :)

Samantha VĂ©rant said...

Ahhhh! Yay! Keep me posted on your queries!!!!
