ah, the ‘business’ of the un-published
i haven’t blogged in a few days, and i’m about 5 pages behind in Running on Empty, which is rather hard to take because i’m right at the end, now, but i made a decision to take care of something that was cluttering my mind to a distracting degree.
specifically: query letters.
and yet, i’m getting better at them. at least from a subjective point of view. i haven’t actually had any responses from agents or publishers that would validate this*, but i’m feeling like the stress is less in the writing of the query letter itself than in the dogged search for the proper audience.**
ah, well. complaining won’t solve anything.
doing will, though.
back to RoE!
* and their absence seems to actively invalidate this, but i’m not going to dwell on that.
** that said, i cannot but thank my wife yet again for her tireless assistance in this endeavor, as in all other things.
