So, guys...

Post  Maggie on Mon Aug 29, 2011 3:55 pm

I've decided, within the next few months, I'm going to start querying. Long story short. I figured there's no better way to learn then just to jump in-- and so much better sooner than later! (I'm totally confused by my usages of "then" vs "than" just now... anyone smarter than me want to clear that up?)

Anyway, just thought I'd share. Smile I'm not nervous. Well, maybe a TINY bit. But I do mean tiny.

YAY! WE CAN QUERY TOGETHER!!! XD

Once I finish editing, get feedback from beta peoples, then implement those suggestions, I'm going to start querying, too! Hopefully sometime late September/early October--just in time to watch MERLIN!!! *cough*illegally*cough* I'll be able to participate in a Secret Agent contest on MSFV! Or the Baker's Dozen auction! SO EXCITED. Very Happy Are you thinking about entering an MSFV contest?

Also--have you written up your query? I'm pretty bad at writing them, but I'd like to think I'm alright at seeing what works and suggesting fixes--for other people's queries, specifically. So if you need any help/just a second pair of eyes, I humbly offer my services. *bows* Razz

*bounces with exuberance* bounce Yes I've had coffee.

YAY!!! If I get VERY lucky, and if all my betas read fast and I do the revisions fast, then I'll aim for October, too. September starts on Thursday, and I don't see how I could have it done by then. Shocked

BUT, I have written a Draft 1 query letter, and it's not very good. Once I'm done with my edits (since I'm sure that'll change the query letter...) I'd be more than glad for extra eyes! I will hold you to that. ^^

And YES! Definitely secret agent contests! (Darn it, I'm going to be nervous now! I'll really want to get in. Razz) And also Baker's Dozen! Wow.

Aaaannnddd... I dunno what Merlin is? *ignorant* *again* Razz

You SOUND like an old person. Razz

And Merlin is GREAT. I told you about it when you were looking around for a fantasy movie/show, I think. Surely... O_O *might have forgotten*

*laughs* I couldn't agree more about the loud obnoxious cheers. XD And same, no offense meant to any cheerleaders.
