AH, QUERY WRITING:
This is how I feel when I work on my Query....
This is where I fear my Query will end up....
I recently received some really AWESOME feed back on how bad my query letter SUCKS IT from:
Uber Agent, Suzie Townsend. Who, BTW, is super sweet and way too nice to say it as harshly as I just did. ..but the truth is, it really, truly, SUCKS IT. And I know it.
I have worked and reworked my stupid query so many times I don't even want to look at it anymore. AND I love to write. I have been writing my entire life. I'VE EVEN BEEN TOLD (and won like some awards and stuff..) I'm pretty good at it. I think my manuscript is ALL KINDS OF AWESOME. But if I don't get mad QUERY WRITING SKILLS, STAT, no one but me and my mom will ever actually read it!! Boo. Hoo.
Here's my motto:
Me vs. Those Two Damn Paragraphs
Ah, those two damn paragraphs. I need to write two amazing paragraphs that sum up my 400 page manuscript. They have to be absolutely perfect. But so far, THOSE TWO DAMN PARAGRAPHS have eluded me. They've won every single match. What I really need to do is get serious. Do some sick training, and then shout out for a REMATCH. But talk is cheap.Cause here I sit, writing this blog, instead of calling my challenger out for a rematch. Can you say, pro-cras-ti-nate? But I will never give up! I will never surrender!
Any one else ever feel like they've gone ten rounds with the Mike Tyson of writing?
