Good News Means New Goals

I wasn’t going to say anything but when I explained that to my mom, I couldn’t put my reason into words so I figured I was being silly.

I have good news…

An agent sent me an e-mail asking for the full manuscript of Night’s Treasure! That was Friday, I read the e-mail Sunday, and sent the full manuscript on Monday.

So exciting! I just about hyperventilated and had to call my parents so I didn’t implode in the middle of Starbucks. That would have been messy.

Afterwards I got my favorite Abby’s Silician pizza to celebrate. Yeah, I shouldn’t have considering I’m trying to lose weight and that so did not match up with my 8-week plan on Tone It Up, but whatever. It was the first time an agent asked for the full manuscript instead of sending a rejection or ignoring me entirely! I HAD to celebrate!

Considering Night’s Treasure is the 1st of 2 books, I figure I should now concentrate on writing the 2nd book. I’m not very far along on it. So I decided to get down to business and make a goal checklist based off of one I mentioned in a post awhile ago – Writing Goals and Scenes to Include in Stories.

Here’s my version:

Writing Goals

At the same time I’ll be working on Psyche as well though I’ll be focusing on NT2.

Do you have a goal list?


About Katie St. John-Shin

I believe in living life and not letting it pass you by. I mean, come on, if you really want to do something but don't have the courage to do it so you let the opportunity disappear, you may regret it for the rest of your life. How can you know what you're capable of unless you go for it? Like every writer, I naturally plan on becoming a world-famous writer. I love reading, writing, fitness, coffee, watching my favorite movies/shows, listening to music, and trying new things even if they're sometimes terrifying. I'm a stay-at-home mom, a writer, and a POP Pilates instructor. I didn't think I'd succeed at that last one but I did it! I confronted my fears, dealt with things I didn't want to deal with, and completed the training! POP Pilates classes are coming soon to mid-Nebraska!
