So! Come and read my MadLibbed query on Carrie Harris’ blog, and if you feel so inclined, feel free to comment. I’m quite happy with the way she handled it. She was thoughtful, thorough, and it was hilarious. Although I doubt queries will never be “fun” in my book, I’m already seeing vast improvements to my letter. Every little bit of advice helps, so thanks!
It occurs to me that we all have different skills. I’m not the one to call if you want a babysitter or (ahem) a query letter, but if you need to clean up a blood spill, I’m your gal. From, uh, working at the plasma center. I realize that sentence could require some clarification.
My writing goals for today are: finish up my essay for my writer’s group tonight, and hopefully finish and send my poetry submission(s). I also have a new short story idea that came to me while I was folding the laundry. Oh, praise be to mundania, for it allows my mind to wander.
Cryptic, I keep missing you. Tonight’s not the night, but maybe tomorrow around nine or ten?
Not related? Man, something went terribly wrong there then… Oops! Did I say that out loud? 😉 Plasma center…. Sure…. Here I was thinking it was from glass and marshmallows.
I’m not good with children or stains. I suppose people could come to me for strong coffee!
Evidently last night wasn’t the night either. I was rather busy putting some finishing touches on moving into the new apartment. The new apartment, by the way, sucks. Had to buy a new refrigerator because they made the space too small. I could go on a rant but no one wants to hear about that.
We have to find a more reliable way of communicating here. haha.
