One more response from agents and editors at the Willamette Writers Conference, also negative. Many good things to say about the story, but this time my chapters were too linear and expected. Three more to hear from, one looking at the script and two who asked to see the entire novel. It is well I get so much joy from the autumn colors.
I just heard from the fifth person I pitched to at Willamette Writers Conference – who also wants to see the script or novel. That’s 5 of 5. I am stunned and grateful and working hard to send them my best work.
I just heard from their script writing contest: My ‘Nandria’s War’ scored in the upper 20% of 6915 entries, but that was as far as it got. Disappointed, yes, but know that is a prestigious contest and i cannot feel too badly to get that far. I keep writing away at episodes. The characters are so real and so human for me.
