You know some times it’s not that I cannot find something to write about, its more that I have too many subjects, and trying to pick one is like walking into a bakery wanting a cream cake and there being an large selection of your most loved cakes.
In the end you take to many at once and kill the treat or forget it and walk out.
That’s the great thing I have noticed and the worst thing I have notice about having an interest such as writing story’s. There is just so much out there that it can be hard to pick one thing to say.
So i will pick one, query letters. I have sent out my query letters for my novel Purple.
Two are still to come back. A month has gone and all the others have come back with form rejections, one had just been signed in pen saying ‘not for us’
I do have a plan, yes a plan and people who know me would probably not be surprised at that. The plan is to hit all the UK agency’s first, because I’m from the UK and that makes sense to me. Then the US and so on. After going through the writers year book i was shocked at how few agency’s applied to me. Thinking it a doubting task at first but then that there was not many to choose from.
I have to wait for all the replays from the ones I have sent out.
90 days is what I’m told is the normal cut off. So two more months to wait. In the mean time I will develop something or not, who knows. 🙂
I would like to know if anyone has not had a reply from an agency or what’s the longest you have had to wait. That would be interesting.
Let’s try that again! Once I’d completed my novel, and edited it to an inch of it’s life, I started the query process. From memory, I queried 25 of the top agents from the US and UK. Most replied “no thanks,” within 6 weeks. There are around 6 I have never heard back from. In the end, as my book was based on 2012, I self published. Not really part of my writing journey dream, but now I’ve done that, I don’t regret it 🙂
