Wait. I think you have me confused…

So, here I sit. Writing and rewriting this darn query. Lol–after all the angsty thoughts of the last few days, I really got serious and worked on it for TWO hours this morning. And I think I may have one that is pretty good. I will look at it again tonight and see if I am still happy with it.

One of these days, I will be able to announce that I am sending it somewhere…if I ever get the courage.

For some reason, I can promote every one in the world but myself. My work, I am so close to it, so critical of it I don’t think it will ever be right.

Sometimes I think my stuff is really good-something I would like to read. But sometimes, (like today) it’s the other way round and I think it stinks like a steaming pile of … well you know.

This could be because of the video(s) I watched where the published author talked about the steps to getting a NY agent/publisher/editor interested in your work. Reality anyone?

I also listened to an agent interview and got info on what they look at when they read a writer’s query/submission. They put on their editor’s eyes mostly. If there are more than two typos, errrrrrrrkkkkk… they quit reading. That’s commas, periods, apostrophes, and misspellings, grammatical errors, everything.

But I persist. I carry on. I am going to be a brave little toaster…wait, you have me confused with…
