Got critiques on NT from my dad, mom, and uncle on this vacation. Most people wouldn’t take family critiques seriously but I do. Especially with my uncle because he’s really not the type to be biased…at least with me. My parents are a bit biased I think but when they gush over it, it makes me feel good. They gave comments that are helpful too. Also, my dad is part of my target audience (he’s 71 with the brain of a 17-29-year-old girl).
There are a few changes I need to make to my MS, mostly grammatical and none I think in the beginning pages. I’ll get that done perhaps later in the week or possibly early next week. It’s not like I’m on a deadline or anything. Still playing the waiting game with that one agent. I didn’t tell her in my query letter that I was sending it out to any other agents because I wasn’t at the time so I don’t want to send it out to others till I hear back from her.
In the meantime I’m making a lot of progress with research and ideas for NT2. It’s slowly coming together. Pretty much all of the details are missing but the big stuff is coming together. Pieces are materializing the more I research and the puzzle image is getting clearer by the day.
(It bugs me to no end that the grammar in the quote is wrong, but it’s true – I write what I want to write.)
So what new Greek dieties can we expect in this next installment?
- The Erinyes
- The Keres
Those are the new ones I’ve made a place for so far. I have some ideas that I want to happen but I’m as yet unsure of how they should happen and who would be best for them.
Here’s a dance that I’ve been salivating over for years now. If I can’t find a way to make it fit this time (and I desperately want to), I’ll keep it in my arsenal for a later story.
For more information on Greek mythology, you can go to www.theoi.com or Wikipedia.org. Both sites are very informative though I think, on the whole, Theoi.com has more to offer and the information is easier to find there.
What’s your favorite Greek deity?
