Back from a wonderful holiday break. Finally reading Twilight. It certainly keeps one turning the pages.
I just finished my novel a while ago and will start writing query letters soon. This is the scary part, as I'm sure a lot of you know. What happens when your dream agents pass on your MS because your query doesn't grab them? That has to be an awful feeling. You mean I'm being passed over just because my query sucked? But don't you want to read the book, anyway? It's really good!!!
Doesn't seem fair, but I can see how agents can only respond to queries that excite them. So I'm curious, writer friends. How much stressing did you do over query letters? Did you get them critiqued on message boards? Did you rewrite them a million times? Did you just go for it and send the first one out that you wrote? Curious minds want to know.
