When Writers Don't Write Part 3

My task today was world denomination domination. Thank you Little Ms. J. for the fantabulous (her word, not mine) suggestion.

The truth is we've already sort of put our world domination plan in motion. Phase One involved creating this blog which is great for you guys because once we've obtained absolute power we certainly won't forget all the little people who helped make it happen. Did I mention that we're going to need revolutionaries volunteers for Phase Three? No? Well, I'll save that for another post.

Anyways, part of Phase Two was an interview with the fabulous people over at the QueryTracker Blog. For those of you who aren't familiar with QueryTracker, please, please go and check out their blog, website and forums. Not only do they have a comprehensive listing of all the literary agents in the business they also have some amazing writers who hang out in the forums and take lots of time to help and critique newbies. It's truly a fantastic community.

Big thanks to ElanaJ and all the fantastic people at QueryTracker who have helped us get one step closer to world domination. If we ever get around to launching our world denomination plan (Phase 4 of world domination) we'll totally incorporate QueryTracker's web address in our currency. You can print stuff on Twizzlers, right?

If we join your world denomination, will you be offering free Twizzlers and proseco? Come on, we need some empty promises here!

Natalie said...

Great interview ladies :)

Little Ms J said...

I'll be a revolutionary, but only if I get to work with the designer on our outfits. No green wool or captain's hats for me. I think that we should sparkle when we march.

Christina Lee said...

Only if I can re-create my flag team in HS with white go-go boots and carry a flag (the LILA flag of course)!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Revolutionaries? Sounds good - count me in! :)

Frankie Diane Mallis said...

I just want to say that a world dominated by you guys is a world I want to live in. Can I be in your cabinet? Can it be pink?

Patti said...

I'm up for some domination. New outfit and a flag, who can resist.

Annette Lyon said...

Any time I hear the words, "domination" or "denomination" from here out, I'll think of you two.

It's pretty much inevitable.

ChristaCarol said...

Haha, you guys rock!

Suzette Saxton said...

Count me in for Phase Three!

Suzyhayze said...

Look at you guys! spreading the love!

Corey Schwartz said...

Oh, great interview! I don't have quite the clout of Query Tracker, but you are welcome to Guest Blog here any time. The theme is "concept to contract." No interview questions, just your road to publication in your own words!

Oh, scary! My word verification is "Be Palin"

Tere Kirkland said...

The take-over has begun!

Can't wait for my Twizzler kickbacks! ;)

Shannon Messenger said...

I will gladly join the revolution. But I think you need a theme song to keep us going--and free Twizzlers for life sounds pretty good too. :)

PS: Now I absolutely must know how Phase Four is going to work. Viva La denomination!

L. W. said...

Let me second the "great interview" comment. I enjoyed reading it. How great that you got to go through this process together. I'm jealously wishing for a co-writer now.

JennyMac said...

world denomination....rock that, girls!

Just dont go rogue.

Nisa said...

Wonderful! And, as always, lots of giggling from this part of the world.

Sarah said...

Oh crap! If Twizzlers were currency, I'd be broke. I mean, I'd have to *give* them to other people? Like to pay for it?

Rebecca Knight said...

I can totally rock a jumpsuit, if you're signing on henchpeople :).

Stephanie Thornton said...

I read the Querytracker interview yesterday- it was great!

Remember when you go out to conquer the world not to fight any uphill battles. Those never end well.

ElanaJ said...

My BIL owns a sign business and he says he can print on anything. ANYTHING. Totally true. I bet he can do twizzlers.

Donna Gambale said...

A LiLa world? I love it. Can I be Treasurer of Twizzlers? I'll make sure we never ever ever run out!

Mariah Irvin said...

I will join the plans of domination if we can all wear matching jackets.

Karen said...

It was a great interview.

And, oh my goodness, sparkly jumpsuits with go-go boots and flag-twirling...AND a Twizzler currency system? Count me in.

Bethany Wiggins said...

QT is the best. That is where I met the fabulous Elana J nearly two years ago! And my sister is one of the QY blog mistresses. QT web page, forum and blog are all huge assets to any aspiring writer~

Carolyn V. said...

Does that mean I'm one of the little people on this world domination? What if I stand on a ladder?

I just found out about Query Tracker and think it is a great idea! =)

Jemi Fraser said...

Query Tracker is an awesome site - very helpful and informative.

Not a big Twizzler fan here - can we incorporate Rolos into the currency plan? :)

Tabitha Bird said...

Okay, what are these twizzlers you speak of? I am Australian and we don't have them.Am I missing out? I MUST know!

Can we have Tim Tams as apart of the currency? You don't have them there. and you guys ARE missing out :)

Kelly H-Y said...

Wow ... that's quite a plan! Love it ... and thanks for the QueryTracker heads-up!

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

I love wearing berets. But I need to know: what color will your revolutionaries wear?
Loved that interview on QT.

PS: my word verification is chmutt and I think that needs to be in your next video.

Katie said...

BRing it on! I'd love your denominations :-)

Weronika Janczuk said...

Great interview, ladies! :-) I love that I can hear your voice(s) when you're being silly (*ahem*) and when you're being super sophisticated. It's a lot of fun to see.

You two are fabulous!

lexcade said...

ladies, catching fire is even better than the hunger games. you MUST read it. i read the whole thing in one day.

Kristin said...

I'll need a big stash of Twizzlers while awaiting the commencement of Phase 3. Yay for the interview.

Kelly Lyman said...

Great interview. Thanks for sharing about QT. I'd never heard of it before and joined today! Hopefully it will make the art of the query letter less painful!

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
