Christmas song of the day: Chipmunks Roasting on an Open Fire
I don't think it's much of a secret that a lot of agents take December off from the deluge of queries they usually receive. A lot of them say it's to get caught up with what they've already received and to spend more time with their clients' projects, but I suspect it's probably so they actually get to spend time with family. And honestly, who can blame them?
I know, I know. It's frustrating to be in the middle of sending out queries and to hit December where it's almost total blackout. But it can also be a little refreshing. Wouldn't you like one month where you aren't a slave to your inbox? Or a month to take a break from your novel and come back with totally fresh eyes?
So take some totally guilt-free time off!
And come back to your novel in January with refreshed and ready eyes. :)
I'm taking December off. How about you?
