New Look; New Plan

I tried this a while back and ended up with the sterile white blog you may be used to.  I'm thinking branding.  Something that you look at and say, "Hey!  That's Matt!"  So what do you think?

As far as writing goes, still no progress on the synopsis or query, but I have a plan.  In the next several days, I expect to incorporate my new chapters, then write the synopsis, then query.  I have no reason to expect any of it will be as easy as all that, but in order to move on I needed a plan.  (I keep typing plan with an e.  I do have a four day trip starting tomorrow, which is how I expect to get all this work done.)

Once the query is written, and submitted, I must focus on something new.  I've lived with these pirates too long now, to the detriment of other things.  I have several stories in various states of being.  I will pick one, finish it, and do the above for said story.  If I have to shelve Skully, so be it.  Whether it is a good story, it has made me a better writer, so perhaps the next thing I write will get published.

Matt you have not given Skully half a chance to get published yet.Let's look at some of the publishing houses and skip over the agents for now.THere are plenty of unagented authors.

I don't know if it's just my browser, but I find it a bit hard to read now.

Okay Ted. I added a solid background to the posts. Does that help.

Jeanne, I'm not shelving Skully forever, but I have to write something else. My problem is I keep coming back to it.
