Scary stuff

Agents are terrifying.
Seriously, totally terrifying. It's a bit odd, researching them; I always kind of feel like a stalker. But the really scary thing is that they don't anything about me and yet hold all the power to make me either very happy or pretty miserable.
Sigh. Waiting is difficult.
I wonder if it's any easier when you're older? I want this so badly now, though-waiting until I'm thirty or even just twenty is so far away. I think teenager's are underestimated a lot of the time, though. . . The website Query Tracker has a LOT of teenager's on it, and they're queries and first few pages, at least, look really good. I'm not the only kid who's trying for this, which is exciting. I feel a bit less strange knowing I'm not the only one(don't get me wrong. Even if I was the only one, I'd still be doing it. I don't believe giving up to really be an option in this case.)
You're still here?
Wow. Good for you.
Well, I'm stepping of my soapbox now, and onto happier things!
I was asked to list some entertaining blogs. Well, I'm reading through Ally Carter's blog, and I suggest it. It's really entertaining. Meg Cabot, of course, is an amazing blogger and Maureen Johnson is hysterical.
Happy news, happy news...
North Korea is firing off missiles?
No, not happy.
My Sister's Keeper was utterly ruined by playwrights? (So I've heard)
No, not happy . . .
The weather is spectacular.
I am so not good at this happy thing.
Here, maybe the puppy will make you happy.

And if this breed of puppy is not your thing, maybe this kind is.
All right. I hope your happy now because I am totally tainted.
Too many Twilight references for three posts total.
I bid farewell before a picture of Alice or Edward shows up.

Wow...I'm not a fan of Twilight-I wasn't allowed to read it- but good luck finding an agent. I'm still searching! It's much harder for younger people...I'm dreading the moment I recieve a phone call from an agent. Any tricks on warping your own voice?

That's so sweet of you.

You'll find one soon. Don't worry about it :)


Sam said...

cipherqueen-Yeah, searching is very difficult. I'm worried about the voice thing, too, but maybe it won't matter. I'll tell them when they ask. . .
Maggie-I'll find a husband soon? I'm a little young, don't you think?

cipherqueen said...

Haha she meant an agent, Sam. Oh, and in response to your other message, I would be happy to view your work. You can e-mail it to me at

Sam said...

Yeah, I figured. She's fun to tease, though.
I sent you a follow up; wasn't sure whether you'd want an attachment or in the body of the email. *Sigh* I probably should have asked that origanally.

Either is fine, but I haven't recieved anything yet in my inbox.
