I'm making good headway on Baptism. I am very relieved and happy to report this. In the past three days I've written over 5000 words, which is more than I've written over the past eight months or so.

I've set a goal for myself to finish the first draft by the end of February. After that, revisions should come together swiftly, since I've actually been doing a lot of revising as I've worked on the first draft. I am planning to start searching for a new agent by mid-March. I've already got my first one targeted, researched, and ready to query.
Let's sell this goddamn book already!
