Book Proposal

I'm starting my book proposal. I know its going to take me a LONG time so I am starting now, while continuing to work on my writing and blog. Oh and look for a job, clean the house, take care of the kid, the dog and the cat... and volunteering in my spare time. You know how it goes.
I printed off "guidelines" from a literary agency I've researched  and like (well there are multiple, but this is the one that really caught my eye so I'm starting there). The guidelines for how to present a proposal to them is 6 PAGES long. I think that my shock in that proves how green I am in this whole process. The good news is that I didn't look at it, laugh and say "yeah right, never gonna happen!" and toss the idea aside. Instead, I said, (excuse my language) "Shit.". Then I sat down at the computer and started.
I have to say, I'm feeling overwhelmed today but I think its just because I have a long to-do list and I really just want to take a nap.
The nap will have to wait.
Actually, the more I think about it, I don't think its my to do list that is what is so overwhelming to me. Its that I'm feeling very much in limbo/stuck. I'm looking for a job, but haven't been successful yet, I'm trying to write a book but that takes serious time and I'm trying to be a mom when I can. I'm not sure where I'm headed and I hate that. I like to know what's happening and what the plan is. Right now the plan is to just keep moving. You know, like Nemo "just keep swimming, just keep swimming". That's me. I'm just swimming away trying to get to God only knows where.
When I figure it out I'll get back to you.
