The Novel Has Worn Off Already

Three posts today. Enjoy the feast while you can.

Dave just sent off another query, after five other rejections. He says each one is a learning experience that should make the next query even better.

First, I really don't want to die a genius.

Second, this advice is coming from a guy who somehow managed to get published just fine without an agent. So he's claiming to be the go-to guy on this kind of advice. Actually, we're discussing every move before we make it, and once we get an agent, we don't have to go through a shopping spree with little on the credit card.

We decided long ago to call this a novel because nobody would believe the real story. Also, we had to cut a number of bumps because book readers enjoy a smooth roller-coaster. And we're tiring of it already.

However, I do thoroughly enjoy all the process, and that is what propels me. I don't know what motivates Dave.
