Tuesday Tally, plus Life

EotF Status

My synopsis is looking a lot better (thank you, Lynn).  She pointed out an answered issue within my synopsis, that turned out to be unaddressed in my manuscript! So I came up with a solution to explain it, which makes some motivations stronger as well, and made all necessary changes. Very exciting. During the process, I came up with an alternate title if “Emergence of the Fey” needs to be changed at some point.

Previous Goals:   

  • revise and submit poem
  • polish synopsis – did most work on this. waiting for feedback on latest revisions
  • send out next round of queries
  • write a chapter in TC


Goals for this week:

  • carry over last week’s goals


It's officially Spring! And what happens? It snows… and not a sprinkling, melting as it hits the ground, but a few inches on the ground yesterday, and still there this morning. Very cold waiting for B’s bus yesterday, with all the snowing and blowing.


On another note, didn’t get many of my goals done. My youngest sister had spring break and came up Wednesday night, stayed until Sunday morning. I’ve spent most of my writing time focusing on my synopsis and making small revisions in EotF. And, hoping to move this summer, we’ve been working with a great realtor and actually went out to look at some houses for the first time! Very exciting. In short, Life trumped writing this last week.


  1. ooh, what's the alternate title?

    I haven't had a chance to get to the new synopsis yet ... hopefully I'll be able to look at it today. Also, you should have other people review it too, since now I've read several versions of the synopsis and my eyes aren't fresh anymore. Other people will see things I don't.

  2. I'll be getting some more eyes to look at it soon. :-) The alternate title is "Daughter of Two Magics".

  3. Hmm... "Daughter of Two Magics". Sounds good, but I think I like "Emergence of the Fey" better. I'd probably be more likely to pick up EotF rather than DoTM. But, that's just my opinion.

  4. Thanks, Scribbler. EotF, to me, is more unique sounding of a title, and better captures the book, so it's good to know you'd be more likely to pick it up. Hopefully I won't need the alternate title. :-)
