Tragically, both ladyjaida and danibennett must be awake for their train at a completely barbaric time. Here's hoping no more sitcom-worthy disasters befall them before they touch down in the Big Apple (*offers up brownies to the travel gods on their behalf*).
I'm watching The Karate Kid. This is one of my favourite movies of all time, though I could not tell you why. It is a strange and inexplicable love.
Also, things I learned from the wise duo of Jones and Bennett: absolutewrite.com is the best website ever. I've been here for three hours, now, and with that and agentquery.com my list of three prospective agents has now increased to twenty-six. Mass querying! This is the way of the future! Mwahah. Of course I am not querying anybody yet. Must still get back three marked-up copies of the first draft (from mik100, azzinita and perhaps calantha42), edit it until I can't look at it anymore, and then have it read over once more. THEN the querying. And the putting-it-back-into-the-box, because it's better for everyone if I can't actually look at it unless I have to.
On that note, QUERY LETTERS. Oh, GODS. This is HARD. So I'm going to stop doing it until I have the drafts back, because this is just too stressful. Instead I will go back to building up my giant list. I have decided, however, that I will be doing the agent-querying and the applying-to-grad-school together, all at once. Figure I might as well get the six months of hair-tearing angst out of the way at the same time. Because, well, y'know, efficiency.
I don't want to go to work tomorrow. What are the chances of snow? Probably bad, right?
Sigh. Karate Kid and tea. And sleep. Yes, yes. I know. Sleep is important. :P
