Query Shark

Well, I did it. I bit the bullet, took the plunge, dipped my foot into the boiling water. I sent my query to Query Shark:

I have no idea when it’ll be posted and critiqued – ripped to shreds – but I’ll let you know.

Or maybe I won’t.

Maybe I’ll pretend the query she’s shredding isn’t mine and slink quietly out of town.

Sent New Query

Still no word yet, so today I sent another new query. Hope I hear something soon. In the meantime, I’m ‘power thinking,’ trying to come up with a new, fantastic idea.

Tomorrow I’ll start the process over again, checking emails, waiting for the mailman.

What torture.

New Query

Over the weekend, I sent the fifty pages as instructed and sent a new email query. While I know it all takes time, I’m still checking my inbox every few minutes. Miracles can happen, you know.

Still haven’t heard from my snail mail queries and I’m not sure if they’ll call if they want to see more, email, or send a reply in my SASE. So I keep checking my mail, hoping to see a positive note, yet dreading my SASE. Usually an SASE means that particular agent isn’t interested, altho, I rationalize, they could say the magic words, “Send more!”

Hmmm, only two hours and fourteen minutes until my mailman normally arrives on my street. Wonder what he’ll bring today . . .
