Now I know it's definitely there.
Someone, somewhere is making a decision on my future and there's not a thing I can do about it. I feel as helpless as a dog hearing his owner say, "You know what, I think I'll get him 'Done' today".
I just hope they're not in a bad mood when they do it.
Tee, (of THAT synopsis fame) had some bad news the other day. Her dung eating agent dropped her from his books. I mean what's all that about? First she's the new J.K. Rowling and now, in the sniff of an otter's nose she's practically thrown to the mercy of the literary welfare state.
I dunno, where's the justice in this world?
(There isn't any Reg, unless you're a dung rolling Politician. Lot of animal excretia in today's entry isn't there?)
Right, I'm off to bed. Nightshift does tend to take it out of me, not as young as I once was yerknow?
Sweet dreams Reg.
Have a wonderful day faceless agent who holds the key to my partial happiness in her hand.
Well that's telling the lilly-livered womble of a man from the dung heap Reg.
Thats Americans for you though even if he is based over here.
He chose to represent my novel from over 400 others he had received during that month.
I had a message on my answerphone from him when I got in from work.
"Hi Teresa, just wanted to follow up with a chat about my email I sent you".
What's that all about I ask. Well I phoned him back and he wasn't there. Months ago he complained to me that Lit.Agents get a really bad press. NO REALLY??!! Wonder why. Well bog off comes to mind and I cleaned that up.
Thank God for R.R.Jones aka CQ and Richard Grayling of Struggling Authors.com Both of whom keep me sane in an unsane gremlin loaded society and boost my moral when I'm on the floor. And I cleaned that up too!! Oh well Reg Richard asked that he and I get out heads together on SA before I start pitching elsewhere. So we'll see how it goes.
I'm still smiling because I will have the last laugh. I feel it in my water. :-)Tee
