How would I know if your mom liked them? Silly kids always visiting for silly things (you must realize that’s why I love you).
Let’s put this mom thing to the test. Yes I don’t have anything useful to write about so this is what you get (cuz it’s what’s on my brain).
My mom loved my manuscript (even though she hasn’t read it) why doesn’t an agent?
She tells me that I have the best characters. It’s better than JK Rowling’s works (not realizing I write women’s fiction – that and she hasn’t read it).
Says publishing houses are missing the big picture because I’m not published yet.
Aren’t mom’s great? They always know what to say (sort of).
Right now I’m in the querying game for my celebrity journal entries for Jules (also known as In the Mind of a Celebrity Stalker). It’s been tough. I’m learning a lot (not really) while querying (except that I can rack up a lot of rejections).
After spending too many agonizing hours on gmail, facebook, twitter, blogger, and query tracker I took a break. I stopped and analyzed my sanity (yes it’s important).
In doing so I wrote a new book (30 Guys in 30 Days) so far my peeps are giving me great feedback (they freaking love it) so it’s on to revisions. With my cupcake basket full and my happy face on (most of the time) I’m skipping into a field of flowers (aka revision land) and ready to make this bad boy sparkle (or girl – since boys don’t sparkle – unless you’re a vampire).
What has your mother lied about recently? What form of torture do you prefer online?
Author note: This is a dramatization. My mom was not harmed in the making of this post – nor did I ask for her insight. She doesn’t read my work – I let my husband do that (chick lit all the way baby, now that's love).
