Disclosure: I am borrowing this idea from Karin Tabke (http://www.karintabke.com/) because I think it was an awesome idea and a lot of fun. And you get a free book out of the deal.
Write a Query about your day in 200 words or less – Come on this is fun so participate.
I made a few tweaks to what I put on Karin’s blog, but only because I thought of something better, hours after I hit submit – oh and some things had to be changed to protect the innocent. :-P
My Life As A Writer, is a 90,000 word, romantic comedy, where Laurie Kapkowski often finds herself waking up between a hot man and two other females. Oh, did I forget to mention: Trixie her Chihuahua, and Bella, her crazy cat, are allowed in bed.
By day she's a mild-mannered programming manager for a television shopping channel. Her world thrives on color and puzzles. Highlighting (color-coding) the hours that belong to her department and a 744 piece grid (actual hours in a 31 day month - puzzle) that must be changed multiple times, while people steal away pieces, and an over-abundance of arguments along the way. Yes-men have no place in Laurie’s life as she isn’t afraid to use no at any opportunity.
Her nights are filled with laugher and love as her adult daughter and husband keep her laughing, when she can hear them, that is, past the 5 barking dogs, or when she isn’t submerged in the fantasy world of her own making. If only she could figure out what her handsome husband, who is cooking dinner, and beautiful daughter, who is cleaning, mean when they say they want to be reincarnated as a writer?
This is 197 words so don’t tell me you can’t do better because I really suck at query’s. Come on let's see what ‘cha got. And we get to learn about each other - How cool, huh?!
Place your entry in the comments section - I can’t wait to read them!!! You will be disqualified if it goes over 200 words - sorry there has to be rules - we all hate them, but they are there to protect the innocent :-P
And remember one randomly selected winner will win a book of my choosing, just tell me your favorite genre and I'll try to see what I can find :-D
I mean hey, its FREE (nothing is better than free) If you're the winner you have until next Friday to contact me or a new winner will be chosen (I know more rules).
