Anyway, I am writing this post to all the minions in the land!
The first week of the Writing Clinic and Contest is almost over and so far I have seen EXCELLENT progress with your queries. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to visit each one...yet, but I do have good intentions. I promise! I'm on vacation...but am dedicated to helping you out!
During this week, I have witnessed complete and total rewrites and even a few deaths of query characters. Muwahahahaha!!! The House of Gaunt has been deliciously evil these past few days.
The truth is: revisions suck! They aren't easy and are a lot of work. But don't give up!!
With every revision made, you are another step closer to that perfect query .... and the ultimate prize. Remember: this blog hop isn't just a clinic, you could possibly have your MS requested and end up with a publishing contract! Now, that is a big freakin' deal! But even if your MS isn't requested, I am hoping that you leave this clinic with high hopes for the future and a solid query + first page!
With all that being said, I am really looking forward to next week.
Week of 10/15: First Page Week - Super villains will post tips on writing a great first page and their own successful first page. Minions will post their first pages and super villains and other minions will stop by and provide critique.
So in a few days, we will move from the query to the first page! This is my favorite part!!
I hope you are all getting great feedback and am glad you are participating!
