The Game

Gang, I’m going in. It’s time to query.

You’ll be glad to know that I’m going to spare you the blow-by-blow of the agent hunt. (Who do I need to blow around here?) It’s too awful. The hopeful beginnings, the form rejections, requests for partials, fulls (!) . . . more rejections. Kinder and more elaborate rejections, but still. I don’t wanna talk about it. I’ll let you know when I sign with someone or give up the ghost.

There must be a way to make this more fun. How about a rejection-letter drinking game. Get a letter, do a shot. One shot for a form letter . . . two for a rejection of the partial . . . a bottle of gin with a nipple attached for rejection of the full . . .

It could be a long few months. I’ll be counting the glasses.

Any tips on how to get through the query process?
