Come Along With Me As I Write My Novels
(And a lot of other new writing experiences too)
While my editor looks at the latest draft of my book, I've started to learn about query letters. I'm discovering that it's practically an art form in and of itself. I downloaded a very helpful webinar called "How to Get an Agent" from Writer's Digest, and after taking copious notes, am now re-writing the query letter draft I started earlier this week. I don't think I'm ready to start sending the query letters out yet, but I want to have everything set when I am ready - from a book synopsis to a book summary to plans for my next books. But back to the query letter. Boiling my 92,000 word book into 200-400 words, which includes a note to the agent and a brief bio of myself, is maybe even harder than writing a book. But, I love the challenge and I'm thankful for two things: 1. that there are so many helpful resources out there to guide me along my way and 2. that I have this pocket of time to do it.
