Okay, guys, I'm going to do it.
In February, I'm going to start submitting The Last Song to agents.
This month (this WEEK, I should mean) I'm going to email/text/Facebook message/WHATEVER the people who have the manuscript and said "Please, guys. Please try to get to it by January 31."
This may be unreasonable. It might not be. I maybe should wait longer. I might not need to wait at all. I need other human eyes to cross my work before I take such a big step. But I feel like I can't wait, either. I'm not sure there's anything else to add to the text, anything else to take away. Of course, if my readers tell me I've done something terrible, I need to fix X things, that February thing could get pushed back.
I want it to be ready, though. I'm ready. I look at Library Journal, Kirkus, publishing blogs. What's coming out in 2015. It isn't me, not yet. But it won't be if I don't sub.
