My CP's and I were talking last night about good times to query. I am pushing to finish my WIP before the end of October, let it marinate while I NaNo a story that's been running around in my head for a few months, edit WIP in December and then query.
The reason for this plan is my belief agents' work lives take a back burner during December just like everyone elses, but, ahem, I haven't really looked into it.
So, we are going to have the participation segment - those of your who were or are in the query trenches, did you notice a slowing down in December? Are you aware of times when more people sign than others? Is my plan rational or rationalizing?
I'd love to know your thoughts on this one.
