I did a "success story" interview over on QueryTracker, for anyone who is interested. I was hesitant about participating, partly because I don't like to take myself too seriously. Have you noticed? I strove for semi-serious answers because I thought if I was too jokey I'd come off sounding like a jackass.

I also hesitated because I think it's a bit premature to call myself a "success" by any stretch of the imagination. Yes, I snagged an agent, but that's just another of many hurdles to jump. I'll save the big party for when I get published (no matter how long that takes.) Then party I will! 

But I did enjoy reading those stories when I was querying--hearing about other people's successes kept me plugging along. 

And thanks for all who responded to the Big Dreams post. Those were fun to read.  Dream on, dreamers!

Wendy, you're credentials are very impressive! I'm jealous. :) Interesting about the Gotham Writer's Workshop because I have their book sitting on my shelf but haven't read it yet.

I'm wishing you continued good luck!

I've told you this before, Wendy, but I absolutely LOVE your title! Great article!

Janna--Thanks. I can't even go back and look at it. Makes me cringe.

Angie--Sailing over hurdles? I sure hope so!

Melanie--AWer Susan Breen was my Gotham teacher. Isn't that funny? In real life and everything.

Spy--Thanks, I like it too.
