I love to play Final Fantasy games and Shattered Pixel Dungeon. I also enjoy the many ins and outs of music (I'm a chorus geek).

So I've started revising my fantasy WIP Save the Queen again, which feels as taxing as it is adventurous. At this point, I feel I should be able to do it in my sleep, but I also know I need to dig up my query and work on it, too.

I think I posted one here and don't remember how good (or bad) it is. I don't even want to go looking for it. I want a fresh start on this (evil device of Satan) thing. For some reason, I want to try out writing it from the antagonist's perspective...? I'm not sure why, but it's just floating in my head. Another idea I'm thinking on, and it's really more of a point than an idea, is showing some of the cards. I wanted to keep a little of the mystery to myself, but it's ultimately the agent who needs to see it, so I can show them a few a-ha's, right? I know it will at least give the hook a punch, and the agent something to look forward to in regards to see how things got to "that point."

I'm talking very cryptically, but that's what's on my mind at the moment. What say you?


  1. If your instinct is telling you to do this, then I say go for it! You can always change it later if it doesn't end up working, after all!

    As for writing the query from the antagonist's perspective, though, I think that depends. If readers see the antagonist's perspective in the book and it's as central as the protagonist's, then it can work. But it might be iffy to go into their head for the query if you never do that in the actual book...

  2. I agree with Heather. It can be REALLY AWESOME but also very hard to pull off well. Good luck, and go with your gut :) Always have time to pull out if you think it's not working :)

    1. Thanks! Today I thought, maybe it would be smarter to try the PROtag's POV. lol I'm going to do a few of these. :)
