Yes, I am meeting my quota in posting. *slacker alert* Nothing to read around here except my own stuff, but whatever...

Write the **** query letter! *just a little cranky*

Please! *how nice*

Don't mind me - This is what happens when I have to amuse myself.

It's 12 query letters, and yeah, yeah, yeah. I KNOW. There's this thing called life getting in the way. I know, I know, excuses, excuses. But, you know, procrastination is my personal idiom, she is my mistress and I must heed her sweet call. As it were.

And, I'm trying to get them out by the end of this week, but since I've done not ONE, I may have to generously extend my deadline to the end of this month. I have to judge a Speech & Debate tournament all day on Saturday, so the weekend will be shot (because Sunday all I'll be doing is sleeping), and you don't even WANT to know what our weeknights look like right now, but, hey, I'll manage it somehow. I hope...

Are these 12 different projects or 1 query to 12 agents/publishers? I might be nice if it's 12 different letters.

And anyways, just write 1 letter! No excuses. If you write one, I'll write one. *pinkie swear*

Well, it can be 12 of anything. My "how to get published" instructor said that if you have a dozen things out (minimum) at a time, one will hit. I need to get 12 queries out on The Abstruse Quest. I could get all my short stories and humorous essays sent out, too, which would give me close to a dozen there, as well. But it's all...work.

However, the challenge and pinky swear *does* have a lot of weight attached to it. So (UGH) I guess I have to write one and let you know, huh? Maybe I'll let you know on...MY blog. So there is some activity going on over there. Check daily and all! LOL!
