I know I haven’t blogged for awhile, first it was because I can’t say anything about Sudan, because it’s politically sensitive and it is, then it was because I was working on my book, then it was because (insert excuse here). Well I finished writing my book, I think I’m on the third or fourth draft, just recently got two more rejections, but one was a really great rejection, the agent said,
a book because I’m really cutting down on the workload at my age. However, I
feel that you should write this story in an article for MORE magazine. Get
published that way and you’ll attract a more hungry agent. I stared in
publishing in 1973, my agency in 1991, and I am really tired.
Well, right now I’m going to focus on the current process of trying to get published. And lessons learned during the journey, but this will also probably contain just lessons learned in general as I seem to learn a lot as I go. So here’s the deal, I’m going to write on my blog at least twice a week regardless of what else is going on in my life–okay if I’m being evacuated there might be a delay. It’s not all going to be about writing, that would boring, besides, I live in Sudan, so I have to keep my friends appraised of some of the other stuff that goes on in my life.
