I finished them all!

I am happy to say, I visited EVERY pitch polish blog that had a query up for comments! Yay! I read some really great queries and first 150 words, s the competition is stiff! The agents are going to have a tough time picking favorites, that's for sure.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my query. I did revise a little. I plan to tweak a little more, even, so if you have commented, go ahead a take a look again, if you feel like it.

If you haven't read it yet, what are waiting on? hehe!

I was tagged in several meme's and also given a new award. I'll be posting these later this week. I'm excited to share some info about my WIP and myself. I think I am, anyway. I might be embarrassed:)

Have a wonderful week, smile at someone, talk a walk in the glorious days of autumn, and finally, write with a happy pen:) Joy puts great ideas into your head and thus enables you to write great stories!

See you all soon!

PS My picture for this blog post? Blue Forget-Me-Not flowers. Don't forget me, friends! Also, the card on the flowers says, "Souvenir" I chose this picture because I wanted to offer ME a memento to remind myself I visited every blog. Yes, I'm proud of myself!!


  1. Wow! What an awesome effort! I haven't got to any where near as many as I hope too.

    I think it's funny that the picture has two of the three flowers I wanted for my bouquet in it. Forget-me-nots and Lil of the Valleys are just so pretty!

    I look forward to seeing the awards and memes :)

  2. WOW-- impressive! I didn't read any or participate because school started this week and I've been in the weeds. :0)

  3. I've been sick all week, and I was camping on the submission date so I haven't even posted my own pitch polish, let alone visited many of the posted entries! I am so ashamed! I'll likely never get caught up now...

    It's amazing that you were able to read them all! I usually love going through query critiques, but I just don't have the energy for it this week. Good luck on your entry! :)

  4. it's amazing that you went to so many! Thank you for visiting mine!

  5. Talynn,
    I actually tried to come back here, probably two days ago, to see whether you had said anything in response to my comment, and your GUTGAA Query post appears to be broken. At least, it does for me. It completely cuts off after the word "QUERY", and the sidebar doesn't load either. You might want to look at that, or just repost the revised version. Sorry I didn't say anything the other day :(

  6. Awww. I added my Query and 150 words and would love it if you could visit ;-)!

    Take Care!

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Insecure Writers Group

Today, my feelings are mixed. On one hand, I've faced more rejection and that's not easy to write about or admit to the world. But I am not crying in my "milk" (no beer, folks:) I want to, but what good would it do??? I received a detailed critique from a "Best First Line" contest. The critique was the best I have ever received and seriously opened my eyes to "how" to improve my writing. Nice! Speaking of critiques, I am still looking for a critique partner. If anyone is looking back, please let me know and we can swap info. I'm sending off a YA query letter and first pages to 3 agents this week. Wish me luck. This will be the first time I have directly contacted and agent with a query. Yes, I'm nervous, so I'm saying again, WISH ME LUCK!!!

Operation Agent Ink

UPDATE: PLEASE FILL OUT THIS QUESTIONNAIRE AFTER YOU SIGN UP. Have you ever wondered what agents were dying to find in their inbox/slush pile? There have been many times I entered a contest and not even received a comment, not even from one of the agents. Or maybe the agent was kind enough to leave a comment that simply said, "Sorry, this just isn't what I'm looking for, but I love the premise and your voice." I always walk away feeling unsatisfied. If I had known exactly what the agent wanted beyond, "YA" or "Fantasy" I might not have even entered a contest I knew I wouldn't win! Even more, I wasted a very busy agents time! Well, your time of guessing is up! OPERATION AGENT INK to the rescue! That's right! This workshop will help aspiring authors get on the list of an agent's WISH LIST! When the workshop is over, your manuscript will be ready to view by a group of AMAZING agents who are dying to see what you've wri
