The Blushing Blogger

So. I head over to an agent's site to poke about a bit. They requested my partial and I am all excited, so I am hanging out, checking out their clients and all that jazz. I find their blog. I read a bit and she has some pretty good industry stuff.

Then I find her personal blog. Very cool! She talks about all sorts of writing related things and I am delighted. She also has some fab links to other like minded bloggers and I keep going back to go from one to the other. It's how I pass the day. A little writing, a little reading. I, of course, am far too much of a professional to actually approach this woman via her blog... that would be tacky. I just lurk around... Then I get busted. She has a counter. Her counts are way up. For all I know she can get my computer number and match it to my email. I know people who can do that!!! She used the word SPOOKY. I saw my career crashing and burning... So I left a small and humble note. And left. Won't ever go back. Okay... maybe just for a little peek. Later. After my heart beat returns to normal.

LOL TJ }:) I'm sure lots of people often visit her site. I suspect it WAS spammers more than anything else.

Eh, I doubt it..... [very big, very knowing grin]. Not quite clear on the previous post, though. If it was the first novel you wrote, how do you have very little down on paper? If you have a partial, and think it could generate interest, then query it making sure everyone involved knows it's unfinished. You may get an offer, you may get an offer with a caveat that the agent has no intentions of marketing it until it's complete, you may get an offer to send the full when it's complete... but it can't hurt to try.
