Not Agent Oso, but still Oso special

Mission:
To obtain at least one agented call in the month of April

3 Steps to complete mission:

Submit an anti-suckage query with superb writing excerpt to entice and delight
Once foot is in door, do everything possible not to stick it in mouth
Practice midnight meditations channeling said agent's subconscious so they know how crazy dedicated I am

Consequences of a mission not complete:
WWW humiliation
Said agent may wonder why he/she is dreaming of me, saying my name all the time
Carpal tunnel (eh, I get it anyway)
A fine of. One. Million. Dollars. Mwuahaha.

Victory shall be mine. Oh yes. Oh, and come back soon for my super secret amazingly sweet interview with a super secret amazingly sweet new blog buddy. Shhh....

You know it's be funny if agents fined writers $1,000,000 for turning in sucky manuscripts. The sad thing is it would only scare away the good writers. The bad writers, with the over inflated egos, would take the risk.

Good luck agenting!

May the force be with you in your quest.

If your blog is any indication, you've got a good head start on writing well enough to generate a non-sucky query.

Good luck!

Thanks TF. That's my new name for you. Since you aren't, after all, Jamaican like I previously daydreamed, I'll take your Star Wars advice and raise you a Wookie.

Am I the only person in the blogosphere that got the Special Agent Oso reference? Now I have that damn song stuck in my head.

Good luck, friend!
