On Friday, I made copies of the entire ms, the first 100 pages of the ms, and ten copies of the first 10 pages.
On Saturday, I wrote the first three letters and did submission packages to the three agents to whom I actually spoke at East of Eden.
On Sunday, I wrote the other eight letters and and did submission packages to the other eight agents.
On Wednesday, I will take all of them down to the post office and put postage on the SASEs ande postage on the packages themselves. This means that I have officially pushed MdP out the door before November, and now have a WHOLE WEEK to enjoy my freedom and leisure before Nano kicks in.
Let's keep our fingers cross and hope that at least one of the agents calls me back and tells me....well, we can hope that one calls to tell me I'm a genius, but I'd settle for one calling me and telling me that with a whole lot of work, he might be able to fop it off on someone. It'd be a start.
