You have assigned reading today: Le Rejectionist explains why queries are like personal ads, and Kit Whitfield explains why certain "pick up" moves won't work on a publisher. Le R's post is fresh as of minutes ago, and that second one has been in the "must read" section on my blog's sidebar for ages, but who the hell knows if anyone's actually been clicking through.
Go. Read. Learn. Laugh.
And then go enter my contest! There's an excellent flash fiction/essays-on-the-craft-of-writing chapbook as the prize, I only have 18 people entered right now, and ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS POST A COMMENT ON THAT BLOG POST!
I will also give away my famous fudge recipe to the winner. It's amazing, it's easy to make (no stove required if you have a microwave), and it has only been shared via charity auction or blog contest. Enter now, find out if you won on April 15th!
