Was intending for this draft to be about 50k, but I'm already at 60k and still have about another third to write. Errmm, oops.

Sometimes we regret staring AgentQuery and making newbie writers feel like the query process is the end-all-be-all of their credibility as a writer *drinks poison*

I'm laughing out loud about my most recent rejection...I just found out the *one* historical era the agent doesn't care to read about, is the one I wrote about! My luck!

    Good attitude to have, though.

    That's ok, it's one agent. Too bad that wasn't in her sub guidelines though - "I like historical fiction, but nothing about (name era she hates)". One can't please all people, all the time, right?

So being on vacation made being on submission less painful. And made me realize I was being kind of a slacker on writing. Time to get back into it and win it!

When AQCers change their avatar photos, we have no idea who they are anymore.... we're visually impaired like that. Once you identify yourself as a green-faced witch or a fairy princess, it will always so...

    I always brace myself for rejection. ;) It sounds a bit depressing, but it works for me! Thank you all!

The Song Within: Setting Your Novel to Music http://bit.ly/1kUADge

    Interesting thought, but I generally actually weave song titles, themes, and lyrics in subliminal (and obvious) ways into most of my work; sometimes dropping song titles, other times using a play on lyrics and embedding the thought into a passage. Once, I ever modified a track by Professional Murder Music and wrote a songfic based on it (a fanfiction curiosity and subtype).

    I think it's mostly based on the fact I tend to listen to music while I'm writing. =p

Three locations later, I think I finally have the right setting for my final battle for this story. At least ... at this point I think I'm calling it done.

Getting a full request from an old query when you are already signed with another agent is like getting hit on when you are married. You're off the market but it's nice to know you've still got it going on ;)
