The Daily Dahlia

It’s been almost a full year now since I signed with my agent, but the thing about querying is, if you did it for long enough, I’m not sure you ever forget what it was like.

Me? I did it on and off for four years.

I got something like ten rejections on my first ms before I stopped (not that I’d normally advise giving up after that low a number, it’s just that it was far more of a “market timing” thing – NA! – than anything else), fifty before shelving the second one (what, until my most recent ms, was “the book of my heart”), and then was very lucky to find my agent through The Writer’s Voice contest with my third, for which I only sent about five queries.

That adds up to a whole lotta two things: 1) Research 2) Rejections

When I queried the first…

Hollywood in Retrospect

220px-48th_Academy_Awards

Voting has closed.  Price-Waterhouse is counting the ballots.  On Sunday night, we will find out who won the 86th annual Academy Awards.  On Monday, most people will forget who won, except for the people who make it their business to never forget (Harvey Weinstein, I’m looking at you.)  And given the hurt feelings, rivalries, and “How-the-fuck-could-they-ignore-XYZ-but-award-ABC” reactions that will become inevitable over time, I need to remind you guys of something really important:

THE OSCARS DO NOT MATTER.

That’s right.  You heard me.  I, the person who in fifth grade memorized every winner in just about all the major categories, am here to remind you all that these awards do not matter.  Sure, they matter in that it’s fun, and that getting them means you’ll be king/queen for a day, and you have a beautifully designed trophy to put on your mantle.  But seriously, whether or not the person…

Don’t Trust One Source Talent

I am sorry to say I am one of the gullible people who got tricked into joining. I already had professional head shots but they told me they were not good enough and I needed to get better ones, of course for a small fee of 800 bucks plus the 49.99 it cost to start. I was a bit skeptical but looking at their website and the offices around the U.S made it look believable. They said they would send me good gigs that I can try for and that there data base was filled with different types of acting opportunities to choose from. Lets just say this was a  fallacy the only type of jobs they sent me was to be an audience extra which was unpaid I might add. The only gigs they had available was musicals and I told them when I…
