    What some consider daydreaming, I consider necessary thought processes. Daydreaming is where so many of our ideas come from! It was a great post. Thanks for sharing it.

    • Thanks Cat! I plan to submit it next week. Can’t believe it’s only 1 week away. Wow revision time flew by. And even if this revision doesn’t get me an agent, it got the book to a far far better place and that’s time well spent. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Thanks Catherine! Hope so. It’s weird when it was 10 weeks away it felt so much less scary. Now that it’s only 5 days away, it feels so real.

          XOXO

  3. How sweet are you, Kourtney? Thanks so much for the shout out and support. Positivity is the only thing I’d hope to infect you with. LOL

    Best of luck with those revisions! Sure you’ll rock ’em. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It was yet another amazing blog post. ๐Ÿ™‚ And it’s only positivity and greater self-awareness that you’ve infected me with. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m proofreading this week and sending out on Monday. Really excited and really nervous.

  4. Good on you Kourtney–keep going with those revisions–and I’m always happy to read about daydreaming and to read August’s well-crafted words.

    This was a great, inspiring post. ๐Ÿ™‚ And I’m sending positive thoughts your way on your revisions. You’ve got a great attitude toward them, and I hope they do result in representation for you!

    • August is one of my favorite bloggers. I always feel like I walk away better for having read her posts. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for the positive thoughts. I’m in the final 5 days, it’s suddenly really scary. Because it’s no longer something on the horizon but just a few steps in front of me. Representation is the dream, but these are the best notes/feedback I’ve ever received on a manuscript. It was a pleasure to work through them and it gave me an idea of what revisions are like with an agent/editor. It was an invaluable experience. And I’m really really happy with how the manuscript came out. Fingers crossed I get to keep working with this agent!

          • I remember reading that too. They have awesome chemistry. Though it’s not so much acting when you feel it in real life and pretend it on tv. ๐Ÿ˜‰

            Have a star-gazing weekend!
            Kourtney
