Writing Query Letters equals Hair Loss Because You've Pulled It All Out

Oh, and by the by... I have not turned in any queries yet. Two versions of one query letter somehow turned into... 7... (I'm sorry, Kenlyn). I've been nit-picking/slaving over single word choices and staring at this ONE sentence for hours.

I think my queries are getting worse.

I started my blog with the same goal...but then "work" got in the way and I haven't even as much as sent out a query letter. :(

hi christine! thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. yes, query letters are tough. wait till you have to write a synopsis. aaaaahhhh! if you want me to look at your query, feel free to send it to me.

good luck with everything!

Cindy, thank you, thank you for your kind offer! I already have the rough drafts for my first batch of agents. If nobody bites, I'll definitely take you up on your kind offer. I am starting my synopsis today and am not looking forward to cramming 100,000 words into two pages... the horror!

Andrew, good luck with NaNoWriMo! I've been spending more time on my queries and edits than on the NaNoWriMo challenge. There's just not enough time in the day! As you can see, I write fairly short blogs... you could try that!
