Song: "Unstoppable" by Kat Deluna
I just have to share the best thing I've heard in 24 hours. The suggestion comes from my fellow author and agent-hunting friend, Matthew Buckley, (who writes amusing kids books that you can find all about and even listen to the audio of his latest FREE - that's right, completely free - on his blog Chickens Don't Have Armpits). Anyway, as I griped and moaned yesterday about this whole process this was his advice:
Burn a little agent action figure in effigy. That is what I do.
What a *FABULOUS* idea! I was a bit of a pyro when younger (and no, I will not tell my children how WD-40 makes a truly marvelous blowtorch), and this is right up my alley.
So come on over everyone! We're having a FIRE tonight! And Matthew, you bring the facepaint so we can dance around the bonfire in Lord of the Flies abandon. Everyone's welcome!
*If you happen to be one of those agents I queried and you're doing a little research on me, you can come, too. For you, I'll even make S-mores.
