A fine way to end the week

I sent my agent the first 15,000 words of the YA I'm working on on spec. It's called Finish Her Off, and it's about a girl who wakes up on a floor to hear one man tell another, "She doesn't know anything. Take her out back and finish her off."

Today my agent emailed me and said it was "marvelous." [Full disclosure: I've had more than one conversation with her about other books where she was not enthusiastic at all. Which is a horrible, crushing feeling.] She liked it so much that when I started to tell her what happened next, she didn't want to know. She just wanted to read it.

Now all I have to do is finish it!
