"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
I've been reading too much Jane Austen recently, but how about " Rhyme and Reason?"
"A Pitch Stitch in Time" :)
Good morning, Honolulu calling.How about "Reid Reads."
not to take away from spongebob, but the chum bucket has a nice ring and i truly appreciate this segment, extremely helpful! thanks! (unpaid testimony!)
How about; 'Jump In' or 'Bottom Feeder' or 'Botton Reider'. I like 'Jaws' ah...that's taken.
BTW thanks. Wrinkle helped, a lot.
Getting Personal with Janet Reid.
I like The Golden Query Hour, or GQH. Yeah, it's simple and not particularly humorous--but so am I! :D
The Dance With the Shark Hour
It's way too early to be thinking about drinking but here's my list:Querytini TimeQuerytinisQuery ShotsQuery Shooters
Reciprocity. Or perhaps Reid's Reciprocity.It sounds ominous, which seems fitting.

Saturday Night Special ;)
'Our Hour''Right here, Write Now'Sat Down'cometh the hour'
"Blood In The Query Water"

Query Happy Hour or just Happy Hour :)
Happy Hour! And we have a bartender! Oh wait... I do like Happy Hour as a name though. Such wonderful connotations!
Shark After Dark
The Shark's Para-Dine Shift...
Piece of Mind (as in Janet's mind)
Since "Saturday Night Live" is taken . . .Sharkurday Night LiveSaturday Night Shark Attackor a simpleYou Asked For It . . .Building on one of the above,The Saturday Night Chum BucketLet's see:The Query Games (an apt simile) Dauntless! (oh wait . . .)Purgatory Quasm (dang it . . .)I'll stick with Saturday Night Chum Bucket.Terri
I take mine back. I like Happy Hour better. Hic. After all, it will result in a spike in drinking on both ends.
I like the GQH suggestion. I'm also partial to Free Swim.
Reiding hour...is my suggestion.
Since you are ditching form letters, how about "deformed"
"Be My Chum"
Reid it and Weep. Reiding Glasses. Reid Between the Lines.I'm just kidding. But I do love a terrible cheesy pun- the cheesier, the better. But seriously, all the ones that imply that alcohol is involved are the ones for me.
"Testing the Waters""Saturday in the Shark Park""Saturday Q&A (Query & Answer)"
Shark Bait HourChum TimeNot sure if you can use this one: Bait and Tackle (after all we send the bait, you snap the query, then we tackle the revisions).
Query FrenzyShark BitesJump The SlushpileAsk The SharkQuery Shark's Nightime NoshCould the winners of this naming game (and the flash fiction contests too) get a complementary "new wrinkle" type query read — even if they are slackers and their manuscript isn't ready yet? ;-)In the spirit of Query Shark, I would love to see an "anonymized" version of Janet Reid's replies published for this valiant new effort as well. Even if the published responses are only the "fails" — such as whatever is out of scope because she doesn't rep it. This will reduce the chum, uh … unnecessary clutter.I suggest the name NOT include a specific day reference, in case the designated day shifts around. Ditto, for it to NOT include the word Hour, in case the time window varies.
At first I thought QuikQuery or InstaQuery worked well. However, given the shortness of the moment, and that some will be satisfied while others are disappointed, I'm going with...Querygasam*snicker*

I like Eva's "Fish are Friends, Not Food Hour" suggestion! :)Happy Hour on the Reef is good, too.I'm floundering trying to come up with anything more catchy.Testing the Waters?Query Chomp?Sincerely, Janet (which implies the personal nature of the replies?)I stink at titles. Just pretend I didn't post this.
My vote is Querygasm!

"A Query in Time" or"Saturday Night Reider"
"Jump the Shark""Weekend Frenzy"
Wow, after reading all these ingenious suggestions, I think we should all be writing countless numbers of query letters instead to practice The Perfect Query.
Dear Ms. ReidI suppose"A Pyrrhic Triumph of Agentatious Optimism Over Grim Experience" is probably too long?d

I like Happy Hour or Shark Bites.ha They make me wish I'd taken a lunch today.And I have nothing else original to offer.
How about"Because She's Just That Much of a Masochist"?

The Q.U.E.The Query Unstructuring Experiment

How about, "Well, I Asked For It"?
Eh. My vote's for "The Chum Bucket."
