Back to life, back to routine, is writing part of yours? It seems this week the blogs are full of encouragement and get-crack'n advice. But has anyone else noticed many blogging agents are closed to querying right now? I hope this isn't a trend and is more a coincidence. Rachelle Gardner's stats for 2010 were a bit disheartening. What I learned: network is everything. I plan to broaden my network this March at the NCW Conference. What about you?
