Agent for a Day

Leave it to me to wait until the last minute to do my day of being an agent. Nathan Bransford does his big reveal later today, so keep an eye out for it.

My five picks (requested manuscripts) are:

10 – On One Hand
15 – The 15 Date Rule
17 – Inugami
28 – Long Shot Lost
35 – Losers

These are the ones that leaped off the page so to speak. I really want to know more about these stories.

And I really learned a lot about what makes a effective query.

I'd finally gotten a query that I was truly satisfied (version 21). With what I learned from Agent for a Day, I'm going to... wait. Yep. Wait. I'm going take my treasured v21 and put it in a special file and not touch it until I'm truly satisfied with my manuscript. THEN I'll pull it out and work again. But not until.

I've got a million ideas running around my head for my ms anyway. Can't wait to get started on draft 4 and 5 and 6...

How was your Day of being an Agent?

I didn't participate. No time or energy to do that... but I'm learning a lot from other people's posts about it! Thanks for sharing.
