Makes ya wanna think.

Hauling wood and finding an agent

I’ve been a good little wannabe author, putting all my words into hunting agent. I got a major nibble from a top agent – his assistant read the whole Channel Zilch manuscript and asked for a 10-page detailed outline for the agent – who says he’ll let me know within 6-8 weeks (end of November.)

It is well and truly Autumn at The Pad and that means stacking firewood in the shelter behind the cabin. Every day I haul 10 wheelbarrowsful of oak and stack it.

Six face cords of oak firewood costs $380 ($20 delivery) in Polk County, WI this year. A Winter’s worth of warmth.

  1. Great news about the agent inquiry. Good luck.

    Wonder what the delivery charge from Polk Co to Northfield would be. Two face cords cost us about $300 delivered here.

  2. I feel hopeful about the agent. The fact that his assistant read the whole book is big.

    Call up Wenger’s Firewood in Polk County and see what they’d charge to deliver to Nfld. A pretty penny no doubt ;^)
