Has the man gone nuts?
One of my absolute Favourite Literary Agents To Reject My Work is having a Largely Indispensible First Paragraph Challenge over at HIS BLOG and he wants everybody to know about it! How many entries will he get? He's at 261 as I write this (although some contestants, like me, took up their full three-entry allowance). He's extended it until Thursday. I think he's insane, personally. He'll be reading entries and agonizing over this all weekend. I am agonizing over it and I'm not deciding on the winner! I'm getting a pain just thinking about it. I felt bad for taking up space. But I'm a writer and that's what writers do- increase the word pollution in this world!!! I'm only sending you over there to check it out because he's my Favourite Agent To Reject Me and he asked for it. I'd do almost anything for that guy, including not email any more queries to him! Go have a look- some entries will make your eyes cross, or even itch, possibly bleed if you're not careful, and some are incredibly good. They're so good they make mine look mediocre. Go on, git! Git on over there!
