Hello friends and compatriots!
No news yet. Still waiting on the Agent Train for my stop.
Although, I did receive what is to date, the best rejection letter of my life.
An agent I was really into requested my full manuscript. That in it of itself warrants a !!!! But the next email I received from them went something like this:
I cannot represent you. Because I cannot finish reading your manuscript. …Because it is giving me nightmares.
!!!!!!!! Holy smokes man. I could not have asked for a better endorsement. People who have problems sleeping are going to have a hard time reading about the near extinction of the human race due to mass insomnia… So I guess that goes for agents as well!
I’m going to look at horror agents now, because this manuscript is far more horrifying that I originally gave it credit for. >:)
I’m also working on a new project which I will soon be able to share with you. It will be presented in audio format, and has been great fun to work on so far.
Also, I added a link my in “Craft” links- this one to a blurb I wrote on reddit, about my planning process! It has tons of links to various entries in this blog to elaborate.
SO meanwhile, because I really like that you stopped by, you beautiful resilient caribou, you astonishing display of peacock feathers, you stack of waffles, you, dear reader, I will add some fluff here. Because I like sharing. And laughing.
Want to get lost in Youtube watching cake-spinning videos with me? Because they are *singsong voice* amazing!
When I wrote this draft I was mega hungry, so a lot of this first bit is food related. NOW though, I am stuffed FULL of waffles and have a Magnificent Sandwich (band name called it patent pending HG Bleackley 2014) waiting for me for lunch. Chicken. Brie. Pear. Hoooo man I am going to have to wait a while on that though… waffles are my world right now.
How about some pictures instead?
Something else! Not cake! Not food!
Wait for it…
NOOOOOOOO ok how about- this is how dogs drink!
That’s all for now folks!
Back to agent hunting. And when I have this audio-project ready, you’ll be the first to know.
