That’s right…QUERY TIME!
I would like to first say that I made my deadline, thankyouverymuch. My first query was sent Saturday, October 14h, TWO DAYS BEFORE THE DEADLINE.
I’ll wait for the applause to die down.
Since then, I’ve sent ten more. And–I’ve already received one rejection. And you know what? I’m totally cool with it. I took it like a champ. No tears, no bummed-out moodiness. I was surprisingly unfazed by it. I guess that’s good, right?
So now I keep on. I’ve given myself the task of sending five letters a day. My agent list is about fifty-deep, so it won’t take that long. Then…I wait. And wait. And probably wait some more. In the mean time, I’ve been working on Book Two, hurting characters because, let’s face it, it’s what I do.
The query party has officially started.
