I'm going to continue to work on my query

believe it or not, I think writing the query now will help me with the rewrite... I wish I'd written the query first. I keep saying I'm going to do that.

Happy Friday to all the grandmas, fairies, muppets, and capriscious cats of writing land. It won't be Friday much longer in the fair land of Andrew Jackson, Davy Crockett, and Dolly Parton. And sausage. Don't forget the sausage. We also have fried cornbread cakes.

I think we should have a get together this weekend and party.

Queries are evil. Almost as evil as synopses!

Actually, I'm in a similar boat as Bettie - I'm planning on writing a synopsis before I do the rewrite/edits of my WIP. It's a little light on interesting points, so the rewrite is more to add stuff than to rewrite from scratch. But I'm hoping a synopsis will help me know what needs to be done.

Oh, oh. You guys would mention the 'e' word! Meh!


I've got my novel down from 196k to 104K. (So far.)


Head has asploded many times. While cleaning up after last asplode something clicked:

Kee-kat says, "I am a poor innocent kee-kat."
Kee-kat declares a "No Pants Day."

Kiddies rhyme: Liar, liar, pants on fire.

I sees a link.


Happy Caturday, everyone.

I've done a lot of reading today, and not much else.

Does anyone remember how I said a month or so ago that I'd have more time to focus on writing once I was at Uni and not working? And how people laughed and told me that I'd have even less time for my writing when I was at Uni?

Yeah, those people were right... *sigh*

I've now spent 4 weeks doing virtually nothing but Uni stuff. I need a holiday! Send cake!

Turn right at that rock that looks like Rock Hudson. Go about 102.33333 miles and make your way up the drive through the giant dandy lions. Everyone's welcome. Even innocent kee kats and muppets. But watch out for the doggies. They like kee kats. To play with, not to eat. But they will play until you drop. And they love Belles too.

I'll fire up the bar-b and have red velvet cake for desert. Pre-licked of course.

Good morning house of query evil.

I totally goofed off last night so I will be doing wordage today. Rough drafts, a necessary evil also. For me it's difficult to just let the drivel flow and not critique myself as I go along.

Actually, I'm in a similar boat as Bettie - I'm planning on writing a synopsis before I do the rewrite/edits of my WIP. It's a little light on interesting points, so the rewrite is more to add stuff than to rewrite from scratch. But I'm hoping a synopsis will help me know what needs to be done.
Yeah. I hated writing synopses, but I've come around to them since I have a fifth draft written I'm satisfied with. Not as evil as queries to me. Queries seem like either a hit or miss and sometimes an "almost there."
