So much stuff!!

Let's do a bullet list!

  • In total, I've sent out 16 queries, 10 of those I sent last night (which is suicide, I know). I've gotten 5 1/2 'no's so far.
  • So, I decided to re-write my query. It's a little more poppy, and the summary is a little more grabby. I'll send out some more letters and see if this one works any better.
  • I've, sadly, had to drop out of the 60k/60 days, because I hate my characters. When I designed my new set of kids, they were supposed to be one way. Well, they've just turned into little monsters! I want to just kill them all! So I'm going to delete most of what I have, redo my characters, and re-write it. This makes re-write number 5, or something like that.
  • I have an account on quertracker.net, so if anyone wants to be my pen pal, add me! My sn is PiratingYourDreams
  • School sucks, end of story, lol
Okay, so that's about it. Doesn't seem like so much when it's written out like that, but it feels like more. *huff huff pant pant*

All right! Let's get to this!



  1. 5 1/2? How...

    Have you read Query Shark's blog? That might be able to help you. Also I think there's a forum for critiquing queries on Absolute Write.

    1. The 1/2 is from an agency that says they reply to all queries but it's been longer than their normal turnaround period and she hasn't replied to my nudge either. So it's a half, lol

      I've looked through the Query Shark, looked at the interviews with queries on querytracker.net, but I haven't gone through the Absolute Write forums. I'll look into that. Thanks :)

  2. Wait...you don't want to read MY sf, but you have a dystopian sf story in mind to WRITE?

    Makes me think my sf is an epic fail.

    I'm not sure whether to be disappointed or excited to see what you do with a dystopian story.

    1. Blame Styx! They put the idea in my head! And originally, The Doc Is In was going to be a dystopian. Also, I've read YA Sci-Fi. Still don't like adult Sci-Fi. Too many big words. Your sf was not an epic fail, just adult. With big words. lol

  3. That's a pretty productive sounding list!

    I tagged you for the Lucky 7 Meme. Rules are on my blog if you're interested! It's pretty fun. :-)

    1. It would be more productive if I stuck to it, lol

      Ooo, I am so doing that! :D
