I'm in!

Whew, it's been a whirlwind GUTGAA week with reading and critiquing queries and the first 150 words of fellow participants. I feel like I didn't get nearly enough critiques in. I read a good portion of the submissions, but I wasn't able to give as many critiques. I very much appreciate the wonderful critiques I received on my work. My query is all the better for this week's experiences.

And, after attempting the morning window of Agent Pitch submissions (I hit the send button at 11:01:05 and still didn't get in), I made it into the 4:00 submission window. Yay! I'll tell ya, I stared at the clock until my eyes went all googly, and with my heart pounding I hovered over the send key until the clock struck 4:00 exactly and bam! my quick-draw-McGraw-sending finger got my email sent at 4:00:00. Several tense minutes later, I got the email that I'm in!

So, yeah, I'm celebrating the little things and looking forward to the judging fun of next week. In the meantime, have a wonderful weekend. And to my new Gutgaan friends, good luck and relax until next week when the fun starts all over again.
