Footloose and Fancy-free Friday 3/4

Have I really been running this feature for a year?  When I typed the title into my box, Blogger wanted to auto-fill 3/5 as the date.  I guess it's possible as I've had this blog for over 2 years now.  (Official birthday was back in October, but I didn't start posting regularly until the following June, making a secondary 2-year birthday coming up in a couple of months.)

I compiled my list of agents to query, complete with a spreadsheet to track how and when to query each.  I've still got to fine-tune my query and write a single-page synopsis, two-page synopsis, and maybe a three-pager.  None of the agents on my list require synopses longer than that.  Whew. *wipes brow*

That will be the task for the weekend.

I'm working on a post about pitching/querying.  Hopefully Tuesday.  Also, I promise to be more regular in my blogging and social networking activities from now on.  Though you may not hear from me until the evening on days that I'm at the office for my internship.

Happy weekend, everyone.


  1. Ooo, I'd love it if you'd write about the synopses. I haven't yet heard of agents requiring those (eek!).

  2. I wrote a one page synopsis before I started querying. Of course then all the agents who requested material asked for two and three pagers instead. Go figure. At least you're smart to do them ahead of time. I know better for next time (though hopefully there won't be a next time).

  3. Good luck with your query! Way to roll up your sleeves and get it done :)

  4. How exciting you're taking the plunge and querying. Good luck.

  5. Fantastic goals! Can't wait to hear how querying treats you ~ awesomely well, I hope!
