i'm in! and particularly interested in getting to know more people on AW.
i'm currently in the planning/researching/outlining stages for a new WIP. i was toying with doing NaNo, but i think the amount of research this WIP is going to need makes that not my best approach. also, i just got some agent feedback on a previous MS and am now working through a revision which will push things out on the new WIP a couple of weeks.
but i think - and are we supposed to firm this up down the line, or is this our official goal-making? - i think i'm going to shoot for 6 months to be query-ready on the new WIP. (it's middle grade, so probably around 40K.) and to break it down further, maybe first draft done by February 1, query-ready by May 1.
i'd love to make a goal of when i'll be agented, but i try to keep goals in the realm of things entirely within my control.
