K?


The alphabet is a journey of 26 letters...
Each one begins a story.
Your first time…
Were you giddy?
Where were you?

Did you wonder where it would lead?
What happened next?
Kiss!
I’m talking about your first kiss.
Well, those early day of editing…
Felt like my first kiss…
(well, kinda. NOTHING is like a first kiss)
I was giddy…
And I didn’t know where it would lead.
Sure, I had my fantasies...

But fantasies only satisfy to a point.
I had to get back to reality...
And plan what I needed to do next...
Of course. it was..

Send a query letter…
Again. 

But according to Alice the editor...
My current query missed one critical element...
I still had to figure out what in the…
He, he, he “L” will finish this tale..

Always, Em-Musing

Editing and first kiss,is a leap for me,but then to each his own. I hate the editing process.

I remember my first kiss. She was two grades older than me. I couldn't believe my luck!

Dawn Embers said...

Hmmm... did not expect a Kiss post for this one. lol I'm hoping my first sending of queries and such feels better than my first kiss. ;-)

I, too, was giddy before and after my first kiss! Good times!

Well done.

First kiss... I am sure if I thought about it the details would return to me. But not remembering prob says more than enough about it.
