Call me nuts, but I love writing query letters.
Condensing a novel into a paragraph or two of intrigue is nothing short of poetry on paper. I love capturing the essence of story in under 200 words and my heart pitter-patters when my MC comes to life in a handful of lines.
Maybe I’ll quit writing novels and focus on queries. I’ll be that odd Query Lady who collects query letters like the Cat Lady collects felines.
- Queries are the desserts of the writing world.
- They are the sunsets on a successful day.
- They are the angels at the top of the Christmas tree.
- Queries are the back cover blurbs–they are the reason manuscripts get read.
How do you feel about queries? Do they scare you silly or refresh you? Am I the only one in the world who loves writing these elusive little buggers?
Hope your day is querylicious!
