So what do I have to do in the next few days?
- Finish reviewing my manuscript (of novel translated into Hebrew), fix whatever grammatical errors / typos I find, print it out, attach query letter, and submit it to the publishing house just down the street from my apartment (one of the potentially good things about writing in Israel - you can submit directly to the publishing houses, in person, no less. Hooray for saving stamps!)
- Finish translating a short story into Hebrew and submit it to a major contest.
- Sunday - Write your Ass Off Day - get in 8 hours of writing.
- Start looking for new (American) agents whom I had not yet queried (and might be interested in a serious literary novel of Israel/Palestine).
P.S. This post's title is a variation on the last line of Franz Kafka's short story "The Married Couple," an unlikely source of inspiration, but a rather reliable one for me.
