No, y'all, it's a million dollar idea, trust me. A LinkedIn for queries, a catching-place with all the bells and whistles of all the things you think should or could be attached to your query but can't be with the current professional procedures. Check it out here and tell me I'm lying! Also, I have … Continue reading TFAB #8: LinkedIn for Queries
Two posts in one morning?! Surely that is not-good blog behavior! Yeah, I don't care, I need all the help I can get. You can find my Twitter pitch entry here for the pg. 70 contest. You can RT and heart as you like if you do truly like the idea (I ain't gonna beg … Continue reading #70pit17 Entry–Show it some love!
Well, I just had an agent sorta request my revised first chapter!!! (I asked if I could send it in response to a reject letter, which you're not usually supposed to do, but it wasn't a form reject and I thought why the hell not.) Also entering the #70pit17 and #PitMad contests this week. It's … Continue reading Query Update
So, how does one consistently blog when one is also revising a manuscript, planning and outlining another, and querying every day/week? Whoever does it, you must be practicing time travel...
Hello again everyone. I just wanted to put it out into the universe that I've started submitting again--with a fresh, updated, much prettier and less dense query letter. The original writerly blog post is here, but I don't say much else besides what I've already written here (but I would love a few more follows; … Continue reading TFAB #7: Query Time
All right WordPressians, I'm going to dive back into submitting query letters either this month or next (with Camp NaNo in full swing, I may have to start in May, but we'll see). I had an agent looking at a secondary submission, but I haven't heard anything since so I'm guessing they became uninterested (and … Continue reading Back in the Saddle
Look at me using abbreviations like a real-life blogger! Anyway, Camp NaNoWriMo started yesterday and I am happily on-track for now, and I wrote a little "journal" post on my writerly blog here if you'd care to take a look. Aside from NaNo, this weekend has been pretty darn productive if you're looking at it … Continue reading TFAB #6 and some extra thoughts
Well now that I've finally fucking figured out why I was having so many issues with publishing and updating stuff here on WordPress, I can be more active. Yay!!!! But in all seriousness, it's nearly April. And that means Camp NaNoWriMo has arrived once again and I've written a couple posts over on my writing … Continue reading Thoughts from Another Blog: #5
Hello everyone. More shameless cross-blog linking here. But I did kind of put a lot of thought into this one (or at least let it marinate in my head for a while). It's about writing and the right way to write and the "spirituality" of the writing process itself... Anyway, if any of that speaks … Continue reading Thoughts from Another Blog: #4
Hello people. Read this blog post from my writing-centric Tumblr blog if you'd like. It's about NaNoWriMo and writing and creativity as a subject in and of itself and it's not quite so irreverent as the usual Abjure stuff, so maybe that'll be refreshing for you optimistic types. If not, I do honestly hope it … Continue reading Thoughts from Another Blog: #3
