>>7578562 So you can't be happy unless you're completely ignorant? That doesn't seem fair, how am I supposed to use this picture to gage my intelligence since I can't be sure of it because of my crushing self doubt?
Unfortunately, I did not connect with the submitted material enough to consider your project for representation.
I am grateful that you have afforded me this opportunity to find out about you and your project, and wish you the best of success with your current and future creative work. This business is highly subjective; many people whose work I haven’t connected with have gone on to critical and commercial success. So, keep after it.
I wish I had the time to respond to everyone with constructive criticism, but it would be overwhelming, hence this form response. However, there are three pieces of writing advice that I preach to everyone (from which I receive no monetary gain or benefit):
not sure why, but this really made me want to kill myself.
Thank you so much for querying and for giving me the opportunity to review your work. After reading your letter I’m afraid I just wasn’t hooked enough to want to ask for more.
As you might know, my interests are fairly narrow at this time and I wouldn't be at all surprised if another agent feels differently. For that reason, I encourage you to continue querying and working on your next book.
I wish you all the best with your publishing endeavors.
Stay strong brother, we will make it yet if God wills it. Keep working on new material while continually sending out query letters.
>>7579696 aren't the people running the show now basically illiterate and only looking for basic commercial shit? If you're submitting non traditionally structured literary stuff (hence pixar link, hence "it didnt HOOK ME") it needs to come with a cosign from someone actually literate: another author, MFA prog, agent etc. difference between "hey this is anon's ms it's deep" Vs going in dry seems big
any good online articles or lectures on basic writing? I've always wanted to write a novel. I know it would be shit because I'm new to reading but I just want some practice, no idea how to go about the planning of it though.
i'm not very good at writing but i like to think i'm an "ideas guy". i end up with a ton of notes and there is some pretty dank shit in there but i just don't know how to articulate it in a stylish way. The best thing would be to be able to work with someone , on one of my lesser project, like a ghost writer or a co-writer : we could publish the ebook and split the money 50-50 or i could pay him upfront. anyone got experience with that?
Stow it for a year or so and come back to it. If you think there's something there, write it again.
Ghost writers are for people who've made it already. Idea people are basically do-nothing bricks that don't accomplish much, like myself. What changes that is actually doing something with all those notes.
Why the fuck would I grovel and beg and debase myself to some publishers, the porridge of people, just so they can take my writing and share it with other faggots who will misunderstand it and walk around their dumb lives with my poor ideas all twisted on the rack of their retardation? For money? I'd sooner suck dicks for quarters pushed through the gloryhole.
2.4k words had 37k+ works but due to accidents they were all lost. Learned from mistakes and now I have it all saved as a mail, on an USB memory stick and ofc on my laptop. Rewriting everything from memory.
