Slow But Steady Progress
crawling into the future

I've been trickling my query out to various agents. It's gone through several incarnations. I've gotten mostly silence in return. A few polite rejections, and one that I considered borderline rude. All of those were from past versions of the query. I have yet to receive official feedback on my latest query. I have more confidence in the current version of the query, and I'm sending it out more heavily. I'm turning the trickle up to a flow, and I'm going to be making sure I send it to several agents per day. In the meantime, I've edited the finished novel as much as it's going to be edited at this point, at least until an editor weighs in. I've also started and finished a script for a short film, "The Scream Queen." I've started the sequel to Voices In The Rain, titled The Stone Path. The beginning had been in my head since before I finished Voices. It's good to get it down on paper.

So, I have a few new goals that I'm going to make sure I stick to. Every day, I must advance one or more of my writing projects. I'm also making a commitment to blog more regularly. At least one new blog a week, hopefully several per week. I don't know if anyone is going to be listening. But that's not going to stop me from talking.

About Kevin Dicks

      Kevin Dicks, hereafter to be referred to as "I", is, first and foremost, a writer. I am working on several novels, and if you are interested you can follow my progress at my The Fiction of Kevin Dicks Facebook page. I also like to dabble in web design. I'm most comfortable scripting in PHP, woven with JavaScript for client-side functions. I am currently trying to expand my understanding of JavaScript into a grasp of Java and I would like to branch out to creating Android and Google Chrome applications. Mostly, I have a need for several personalized apps, and if I do well on those, I may consider creating some fun free apps for the Android Market.

      I work at a company doing something for a living. I hate it from the deepest depths of my soul.

      All I want out of life is to be able to earn enough to live comfortably off my writing. It is my one, singular goal: Make writing my soul source of income and live comfortably.
