Task of the day

I heard back from the agent that I sent BTL to the other day. She said that she liked the idea for the book but would like to see some changes made. She said that if I was happy to work on them she would be happy to look at the revised chapters. I think that she is right and I am happy to try to improve the book so that's what I have started to do this morning. The only problem is that it involves changing the influence of one of the characters which is quite a big job (in my head at least.)
I have given myself a month to get the first three chapters done.
I am still hoping to write a little of CT every day as that has its own wrting slot scheduled into my day.
Wish me luck.

That's FANTASTIC news. Well done. Wishing you all the luck in the world (although sounds like you don't need it).

Oh I'd like to think that I didn't need luck Suzanne - they haven't said yes but fingers crossed they'll like the changes.

It's an encouraging response. Good for you for catching their eye with this. Nice to have some good news isn't it.

That's brilliant Colette - if an agent shows enough interest to ask you to make changes, then they really ARE interested and really DO think it's good. You must feel really encouraged! Well done, and good luck with the changes. xxx

Thanks Amanda and Helen. I actually enjoyed revising the first chapter more than I thought that I would.
