"Hi Laura. I'm in exactly the same position. The agent gave me feedback and asked me to resubmit. Here's the thing: the feedback feels right. The book will be better for it. So, I'm going for it. I'll let you know. And good luck!"
I'm originally from Belgium but was raised in the United States on the east coast. Currently, I live, raise daughters, work, and write in San Diego.

I have a short story published in Bookmarks: a fiction anthology of writers from SMU.

Hi, Kate! Thanks for adding me as a friend! :D I miss Europe too. We used to live in Holland and I remember taking the train to spend the afternoon in Belgium. Good luck with your book that's on submission! (Do you have a blog? I didn't notice one in your profile) :D
>When I read The Wednesday Sisters (in one great gulp), I felt such a longing to have that sort of community in my own life. It's a wonderful book.
:-) Thank you! The writing part is based on my own Nashville writing group, which I now connect with from afar - an amazing group of four writers who started unpublished and now count 8 books published or being written under contract, plus articles, stories, poems... Really amazing how far a little support goes.
>I have an agent for my first (technically my second) novel and am working on a new one. Novelists–Struggling or Not sounds perfect for me.
I just opened the door to the novelist group for you - welcome! You might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion if you're not too uncomfortable talking about what you're working on. I’ll look forward to chatting with you!
