      Little Wol Good idea TheWeyMan. I made the mistake of sending mine out to my favourite agents first, and so got rejected before I'd got some much needed feedback and made improvements.

      Daedalus I know that feeling...I'd say in my case the latter has about a 97% chance of being accurate

      Daedalus Actually, given I just decided to put my current WIP on ice, probably more like 99.7%. Maybe you'll do better than that! Love the title btw

      Gemmy I think I'm at 99.9% at the moment! I'm too critical. And thank you :)

      TheWeyMan How about submitting to a few that aren't your favourites? Test the water...

      Gemmy That's a good idea. Thank you! I do have a long list of agents so perhaps I should try a few near the bottom.

    Gemmy It's been a while! Again! Hey Word Cloud! I joined you around six years ago, not too long after I finished the first draft of my novel, The Violet Sky. Still working on it. Still haven't sent it to agents. *thumps head on desk*

    One of my friends has offered to promote your page, so I've given her a link, hope you don't mind! Anyway, it's the weekend so let's get cracking with the promoting! I'll post your page again soon! I'm aiming for 200 by sunday I think... eeeek xxxx

    Up to 44 now! Is that in a day? Well done, you've proven you're good at promoting! I really need to get my bum into gear... Argh, it needs doing so badly and I want to do it, but I just can't get myself into editing atm. Ah well. It'll come eventually. I'm sure. x
  • ryan_mark
    by ryan_mark 6 years ago
    Yeah, come to think of it, I do most of my writing at night too. Must be a more creative time. Can't get motivated to do my editing though... seriously, the same page has been staring at me for the past two days... x
  • ryan_mark
    by ryan_mark 6 years ago
    I suppose as writers we have to deal with late nights, especially if you're hit with a creative splurge (oooo nasty word haha) I was meant to be doing some editing today but I've not... ooooops... I really need to get my bum into gear. x

    Haha... it was a late night! Totally bushed *yaaaawwwn* I only got up 30 mins ago... laaaazzzzyy! hehe x

    I've been believing in something so distant, as if I was human, and I've been denying this feeling of hopelessness, in me, in me......... Love it. We are truly soul mates x

    Love the page, you've got 4 likes already, should be proud! As we're Bffs I would like to add you on facebook and tell you I would love to trade writing tips and (titanic and beauty and the beast gossip) x
  • ryan_mark
    by ryan_mark 6 years ago
    I'm so jealous of your beauty and the beast collection. I well need to buy it on DVD, it's actually inspirational. This must be fate, we both love titanic and beauty and the beast. Friends forever? haha!

    by ryan_mark 6 years ago
    I have (still) Beauty and the Beast on VHS and I can't watch it... It's my fave Disney movie of all time... BOOOO. Get a facebook page, seriously, I've got 39 likes in a day! I think in the current climate if you can prove you've got a fan base you're more likely to be picked up.
