Man, that's just painful to TYPE! I've been doing a bit of research ("a bit" being the key there) and I think I may be too harsh (who? ME?!?) on this agent thing.

Okay, so I won't write off anyone that charges me basic fees AFTER a sale, of course. No upfront fees or it's a high-heel to the nads, baby. AND, I decided I don't really care WHAT someone does in their free time. I mean, I crochet afghans and ponchos (to earn money for Nationals) and THAT takes away frommy writing, so why can't an agent be an agent during the workday, and a writer at night? I guess I'd only have a concern if they wrote the same genre as I do. (I mean, why push my book if they have their own, yanno?)

So there ya go. My list is open once again. I do have some I'd never consider, but for other reasons. And why this agent issue is bugging me so badly right now, don't ask, cuz I don't know.

I'm in a great deal of pain tonight. Tried to go a day without my usual medical cocktail, and now I know I officially CANNOT do that. ~sigh~

I'm off to watch FATAL ATTRACTION and crochet. I'm almost done with another blanket. If anyone's interested, let me know and I'll post pics of my work.

~Dream sweet when you get there~

"I hereby decree that I will have one of my romantic comedies in shape enough to pitch it to agents at Nationals."

Yup....I read it here. I'll be looking forward to it.

Yikes! Hey Mo!!! Man, I have got to stop making declarations on here. Too many witnesses! -grin-

You still have a day and a half to come up with a schedule on your own. Something more specific, I think, than the decree in your blog. =).

Oh ugh. ~grumble~ But ..but...okay, fine.
