Day 11: Another Partial

Another partial request, though this one's asking for an author bio. I'm a little intimidated. Writing-wise, I have very few achievements (except the ability to wrangle A's from teachers who start quarters with "I do not give A's" /end german accent and joke/) and the fact that I'm an undergraduate student can't help either.

I can draw, but I'm not sure how much that's going to help...

Hi, Blanche! I wandered over here from Nathan Bransford's forums and noticed your an Econ major. So was I!

Good luck with your agent hunt. What do you write?

Hmm. Pardon the typo in the previous comment. Your = you're. I'm really not a moron:)

Hey, I found you because of Nathan's blog too.

Just be honest Blache. Tell the agent this is your first novel, or something along those lines. Don't try and make yourself someone you are not. If you want, add that you are in college and what your major is.

You don't have to be memorable. Only your words (your Query, manuscript, ect.) do.

And you have not sent out very many queries I noticed...and you've already had repsonses! That is a great accomplishment.
