Agents Response

I would cut and paste the agent's most recent response, but it was short and to the point so I'll keep it brief.

She will be sending me a draft agency agreement by Tuesday and is looking forward to representing me. For some reason, she thinks I'll be fun to work with.

Did I mention that I have an agent in all but signature? And no, I'm not telling you her name until the ink is on the paper. Call me superstitious, but I'm waiting for the fat lady to sing.

Yes I'm excited, elated, happy and freaking out all at the same time. Still waiting for someone to jump out from around a corner and yell, "Psych!". So until that happens, I'm going to be happy and smiling and writing.
