Best laid plans

Best laid plans of mice and men often go astray (or something like that, apologies to Robbie Burns).  So, this month my plans are to continue my writing and researching for writing, and post some of this here in the blog. Most especially, I want to post about agents' and publishers' websites. Ideally, that would mean weekly blogging--something I'm not used to doing, but we'll see how I get along with it.
As usual, I'm behind time with it, because I should have blogged about this on Saturday, so I'm about four days late. Not too bad. I can always meet deadlines imposed by others (such as professors or editors) but when it's "just me" I tend not to take it so seriously. Not a good quality!
Anyway: On Saturday I looked up websites for two agents. The first, was Strothman Agency . Unfortunately, I found that they are looking for scholars and journalists, and I doubt if they'd be interested in any of my children's stories. I thought of that agency in regard with a book of biographies that I thought I'd already finished. But when I read over what I have written, I realized that there is a lot of work yet to be done on it. Nevertheless, I'll keep writing the biographies and searching for an agent or publisher for it.
My best laid plans? So far, so good.
