Less than 48 hours after I received a full request from one agent, and I've just received a partial from another! This week is AMAZING!

Is there anybody here who has some experience with college writing supplements?
mammaMiaUm. The Common App essay and some writing supplements specific to some of the colleges I'm applying to. I just want to know if they are grammatically correct and if they really show who I am :)

LicentiaDidn't you say earlier the terms weren't good?

AWExleyThat's why I'm going through it. The lump sum is enticing and they have reduced the time period. I would still love to know their game plan.

Today over at Operation Awesome I pose the question: Should you use comps in your query? Would love to hear your thoughts - http://operationawesome6.blogspot.com/2013/12/should-you-comp.html

It's really hard to come up with an "original" idea.
XanderIronheartIdeas sometimes come naturally, but if they don't, make columns of motivations, conflicts, characters, situations, imperfections, etc and draw a curve through them. Write a novel on the curve.

WarriorI know...it can be hard.

Query Questions with agent Shira Hoffman. What do agents really think of typos? http://www.michelle4laughs.blogspot.com/2013/12/query-questions-with-shira-hoffman.html
Cheryl B. DaleNice interview!
Dec 17 2013 12:50 PM
XanderIronheartThese interviews prove that many agents are cooler than what authors might think about them :)
Shira would be on my list if I ever write in that genre.

Has anyone ever was asked by an agent to sent in a proposal and then 3 chapters of your book and still get an rejected letter?
Michelle4LaughsHappens all the time. Even happens when you send in the full manuscript.

AWExleyYip. I've have multiple requests for fulls and still got the dreaded form reject :(
