I’M SCREAMING

I’M SCREAMING SO MUCH

THIS CHAPTER GOT EVEN BETTER

IT’S NOT JUST ONE NICE HAIR GUY

THERE ARE TWO NICE HAIR GUYS

I CAN’T STOP SCREAMING

Yeah, I would say that one particular callous blamey ableist rant somebody directed at me without caring what was actually going on hurt more than I could let on at the time. That was at least 10 years ago, and I nearly just berserk blocked somebody else over saying something which reminded me of that 😩

I'm beginning my journey into the agent hunting/querying universe. Any suggests for avoiding the dread, anxiety, and nausea that accompanies it?

Hmm I’m not the best resource for querying info, since my pub journey was quite different. But the best advice I’ve heard is to compile a list of your favorite books/authors that are close to who you are as a writer/what you’re working on, and then figure out who their agents are. From there, agents are pretty open about what they’re looking for or if they’re even open to queries. So you can narrow down your choices for your first wave of queries. :)

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
