You Humans Are Driving Me Insane

Guys

If you have a manuscript to query

QUERY THAT SHIT.

Do you think an agent's going to come down your chimney and offer you representation?

SEND THE GODDAMN LETTERS.

MBee said...

but..but..I dont have a query letter written! My MS is not done yet!

ryan.gebhart said...

I'm querying. I'm querying already.

I've got 60 out there.

The agents I haven't queried request synopses, or they're snail mail.

hannah said...

ryan's free.

MBee--What are you waiting for?? Are you expecting someone to swoop down and finish that shit for you? GO GO GO.

"Do you think an agent's going to come down your chimney and offer you representation?"

Uhm, yes. This doesn't happen?

I might be the kind of person you're talking to. I'll go stand in the corner.

hannah said...

They effin suck, Sage.

Guys, if you don't send your queries Imma make email accounts in your name and WRITE QUERIES FOR YOU AND SEND THEM.

THEN WHAT.

hannah said...

You have no idea how much I want to do that. I miss querying.

Ah, I totally needed something like this to kick my butt into action...I'm like the worst querier ever. But I'mma be a good writer *runs off to search for people on agentquery*

Also you totally just blasted my agent coming down the chimney dream, lol ;)

hannah said...

oh, and twitter people, tweet your query progress at me and I will shower you with praise. extra credit if you use the hashtag #moarqueries.

Nadine said...

Okay, I'm going to take one more look at the manuscript this week and then send the queries next Monday. Le sigh...

hannah said...

I love this- Hannah girl, you rock. Once I get this mother done- I'm going to read this post five times a day as I'm relentlessly plastering QueryTown with my Manu~ Squealing joyfully as I go. Can hardly wait to spear head the mystical world of agentry with my letter head. Yee ha and all that, Hannah~ you make this even more fun.

M.J. Horton said...

I adore you. Mine should probably be revised to...

Guys

If you have a manuscript to finish writing

WRITE THAT SHIT.

Do you think I'm going to come down your chimney and finish for you?

FINISH THE GODDAMN MANUSCRIPT.

lol
(There should also be a little P.S. FUCK SCHOOL right after that too) :D

hannah said...

FUCK SCHOOL fits in EVERYWHERE. I might start signing my fan mail with that.

Dear reader,

I love you, you rock, thanks for the letter and the monies! Read Invincible Summer when it comes out in a million years!

Fuck school,
hannah

Is Fuck School where they train porn stars? :)

I'm writing that shit and the moment and aim to be revising that shit around Easter. Then I'll find out from betas if the end product is any good or if it's...well, shit.

MBee said...

I'm working on it! I swears it! On a whole stack of beat up bibles! I'm getting very close to the end. You'll be the first to know when it's done :)
