Remember this post, in which I vowed to keep writing and not give up?
Well I did it.
And then I submitted my query letter and writing sample to a whole bunch of agents. And got a whole bunch of rejections. So I made some edits and tried again.
[RINSE AND REPEAT]
[INSERT MORE HARD WORK HERE, and maybe a little bit of luck, and...]
Today I signed with a literary agent. A real one. In New York City!
After I outline the next two books in the series, he’s going to start shopping it around to publishers.

I have a confession. I’m totally hooked on Twitter. The short format makes you get to the point… now and makes for some of the most pithy, funny, laugh-out-loud commentary I’ve seen.
Here are a few of my favorite examples from the past few months:
“I” before “e” except after “Old MacDonald had a farm” @meganamram
“Imagine when paper was invented and people said, “It’s just not the same as reading on that dead sheep skin.” -Barbara Kingsolver @penguinusa
Every week with a toddler is like that scene in JURASSIC PARK where the velociraptors learn to open doors. @ChuckWendig
“Oh, you won a gold medal for running 100 meters? We just landed a car on Mars.” Nerds:1 Jocks:0 @mike_critz
If you see or tweet something funny, make sure and send it my way! You can find me on Twitter at @bananas.
