Skillful (TWSS) Writer seeks paying gig…

Well, fuck…started putting out querys again and got my first rejection…although it was a lovely rejection, it still sucks! According to this agent, I’m a very skillful writer but she just didn’t fully connect with the voice and the story premise was interesting but she didn’t know how to market it…I guess we writers need to start including a marketing plan as well…Doesn’t that mean we should just skip the agent and do the publishing ourselves. Maybe I should open a publishing house because then I wouldn’t have to say I self published. It’s a book for chrissakes. It tells a story and that’s how you market it.  Um, Right….This query stuff has a tendency to drive me insane.

Actually, I should be happy the agent responded because most don’t anymore. I’ve bitched about that before and it was nice that this agent used my name, the name of the book and was very encouraging. So, the real question is what now? I still have several querys out there and I’m still totally in love with my story so I’m not going to let it go just yet. It seems that they ask for new ideas but then don’t know what to do with them when they come around.

The next story I’m working on has the basic wizards, witches, faeries, vampires…ya know the normal paranormal stuff…but with my own twist of course…Maybe I should try writing some porn er, I mean erotica for the paying market. The fanfic market seems to like what I write. Thank god for that avenue, it feeds my ego and helps keep me going with the writing. I’m not sitting all alone in my cave chanting omg they all hate my writing. Why am I doing this…I fucking suck…(okay I may do that every once in awhile, but not too often)

Well, that’s it for today…The real world is yanking me by the hair to get moving today….laters, Drizl
