If that ain't motivation...
I dunno what is!---------------> Jaci's got an agent!
I actually started a post yesterday about needing about 8 more hours in the day, but oh, pish, who wants to hear me pseudo-complain when I can celebrate instead!
Not too long ago, Jaci vented some frustration about the appointment procedure for RWA and the fact she'd have to resort to stalking agents in the bathrooms and elevators. I think she found an alternative---cyber stalking... She's currently teaching me the techniques. (Watch out, agents... I know the tricks...bwahaha)
Okay, so that's just for laughs, but it clearly looks as tho' fate knew she wouldn't need that little ole appointment anyway, b/c it was in the cards that she'd HAVE an agent when she went to RWA. (I'm sure J's reading this still going, omg...omg...luv ya hon!)
I met Jaci when she was posting--yeaaaaaaaars ago--on the eharlequin boards and she took place in a round robin. Honestly, I was in awe of her writing then. She had "it" all the way. Somehow it turned out we were entering the same contest and made contact to exchange entries for final crits. We've been picking on each other every since. (tempted to get sappy here, but I'll spare you the details.)
Ain't it double cool that while I've turned into one of her biggest cheerleaders here, my muse has also decided to get motivated and is chomping at the bit to get edits done and the next story written. And then more edits, then more books and then... you get the picture.
It's grand when you can do what you love, love what you do and have these wonderful things happen to make it all worth celebrating? *beam*
