My Query

I think I need to rework my query.

I was really hoping it wouldn’t come to that, but if that’s what it takes to get requests for partials, then I guess that’s what I need to do. It’s certainly not working as is.

Maybe that’s something I can do tonight while I’m waiting in line to see “Eclipse”. You read that right. I’ll be one of the crazy people out tonight to catch the midnight showing of the movie. Right along with my daughter. She might be able to help me write that darn query, too.

I am looking forward to the movie. We’ve been to the midnight showing of the other two (and froze in the November air), so it’s becoming a tradition for us. We’ll be doing the same when “Breaking Dawn” comes out, too (whenever that will be). What can I say – we’re hooked on the series.

So, maybe sitting outside in the relative warm air (the high is only supposed to get into the mid 70’s), among other “Twilight” fans, will inspire me to write a better query. One that will grab that agent and make them want to read more.

It’s my dream, and I’m sticking to it.

I've re-worked mine three times and I keep a record of which is more 'popular' so far number three by far :) re-writes are a good thing

Good luck with re-working your query letter. Hopefully I'll be there soon.

I love going to movies when they open at midnight and there's a ton of people waiting too. It's more about that than the actual movie for me. ;)

Thanks for the encouragine words. I did rework my query last night. Only fixed one paragraph though. I hope it's enough. It's so hard to know what works. I'll have to hunt some other people down to read it and let me know.

And even though I'm sleep deprived (only had 3 hours), the movie was well worth it (and seeing it with my daughter even better). It's definitely the best of the three!
