What's in your in-box?

What's in your email in-box today?

Anything good?

I have my husband's sales (wakeboard stuff); my husband's alerts (more wakeboard stuff). There's my daily scripture reminder that I am now 47 days behind my scheduled reading program. Oops. There's the kids bowl free coupons. There's a few church emails--who needs help moving today etc. And that's about it.

What do I want in my in-box? Any of these three choices would work:

1. Dear Maggie, I'd like to offer you representation. Signed, Awesome Agent
2. Dear Maggie, I would love to publish your novel. Signed, Awesome Publisher
3. Dear Maggie, Your home loan is approved and your interest rate will be 0.5% (haha). Signed Awesome Loan People

I've been checking email non-stop for these messages. So far, it's a no go.

What do you obsessively check email for? But what are you FAR MORE LIKELY to receive in your in-box?

AND P.S. Deborah gave Growing Up Gracie a great review over on her blog. Check it out!

I'm the opposite. I don't want to check my email because I assume I'll receive bad news. Yeah, I know, I should be less pessimistic, but I can't help it. I'd rather be pleasantly surprised than supremely disappointed. Here's hoping you hear back soon!

I was hoping you'd see it. I'm so pregnant brained lately, and I forgot to put a title to the post. Yesterday I forgot to put a picture up. The day before I forgot to put links to Goodreads and Amazon.

Anyway, five-star book. I really did love it and I really do hope you get published again and again and again. (Basically I'm hoping emails one and two come true. Soon.)

At the moment I have my verification to hostmonster and 2 crits I'm gonna have to get to!

What do I wait for?
"Thanks for sending the requested revisions I asked for. I read through them and love it. I would like to move forward with representation."

Still waiting...

Same as you. Agent stuff is what I'm looking for.

Instead, I get a lot of goodreads, group posts for writers groups I'm in, emails from friends (I love those!) and church notifications.

Right now I'm obsessively waiting from the publisher my agent sent a few manuscripts to AND I'm waiting for MY BOOK COVER from Cedar Fort...

I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for ѕomething uniquе.

Р.S Apologies for being οff-topiс but Ι hаd tο ask!

Εveгything publiѕheԁ was verу гeaѕοnаble.
Hоwеver, think about thiѕ, whаt if
you typed a catchier titlе? I mean, Ι dοn't wish to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a headline that grabbed people's
attention? I mean "What's in your in-box?" is a lіttle boring.
Υou might ρeek at Υahоo's front page and see how they create post headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about everything've gοt to saу.
Just my ορinion, it ωould make уouг pοѕts
a little bit morе іnteгеstіng.
