What to do when...
... an Agent requests your non-fiction book proposal.

  1. Thank God that it's on holiday Monday so you have all day to contemplate this.
  2. Realize that your kitchen and dining room... not to mention your living room need to be cleaned.
  3. Immediately turn on the TV and vow to watch Regis and Kelly every single day of your upcoming Maternity Leave
  4. Refuse to open the Word doc containing the proposal until your office is clean.
  5. Freak out *just a little*.
  6. Blog.
  7. Read all your favourite bloggers.
  8. Look at the agent's web site 30 or 40 times.
  9. Make more coffee.
  10. Look out into the backyard and wonder if this might be the perfect time to go weed and put some more soil down.

Um...don't forget, "Be pleased that much deserved success is coming to me as I work my ass off for it."
Way to go, girl.
