Ari is angry tonight. I like an angry Ari. He gets it done. Well, most of the time. Even the best fictional agent has his bad days. Days where the usual approach isn't working. Like making a joke with Mike Tyson about biting someone's ear. The God of all agents couldn't even seal the deal with the Mrs., big balls got blue balls.
Definitely in a funk. His clients didn't have nice things to say about him, didn't feel connected or appreciated. And he seemed to have a hard time finding his A Game.
So, this all had me thinking. Even agents lose their mojo. They are human after all, aren't they? I mean it's not like they're vampires or anything....Now that would be a great character. A hybrid of Ari Gold and Eric Northman. Hmmmm....now he would be the perfect fictional agent.
But here is where Ari gets all flustered too. He veered of course. Got so big he lost the personal touch with his clients, what made him great. He lost his voice people.
All this query business has me flustered. Freaked out. Contemplating changes I never thought about before. But it doesn't mean change won't be necessary. Bottom line, my query worked on two agents. Ok, not bad. When I go back and read them, it's missing MY voice. How did I let that happen?
So it's back to the drawing board. I have a lot to figure out. My genre fit, that's first and foremost. Getting the word count down a wee bit. And making the decision where my completed MS fits in the series. It's gonna be a long week, a lot of digging and searching.
Who knows what I'll find but it sure will be fun. Poor JAWS!
