One Whine Away from Success

Good news: "Let's see your manuscript" from the most recent book publisher I queried. That was the query letter I didn't feel like writing, had 10 excuses for not writing, that I wished would write and mail itself. Not only that, but it got a really quick response and refreshingly polite "Look forward to reading the ms."

The effort was all worth it! All worth it!

Lessons learned:
1. I should do any chore that has even a remote possibility of helping me toward my goals.
2. Fourth time's the charm.
3. If a publisher's interested, they'll respond ASAP!

  1. Congratulations!

    I, too, whine my way through many a query. I have one waiting to be printed, and I'm putting it off because I don't want to proofread right now! Crazy, huh?

    I shall now go exercise my printer.
