Even with my disgruntled feelings for my ms, I decided to test the waters a little today with my query. Since it would be too easy to just pick a few agents that rep what I write and send the queries and first five pages out, I went through and found several that specifically state query letter only (no sample pages) and sent my query out to them to see what kind of responses I get. Then, if it's a bunch of rejects, I'll know that it's probably the query that's the problem, and I'll know what needs to be fixed.
I realize this logic may not be solid, but I can't seem to make myself do it without analyzing it to death. This is how I deal. Don't judge. ;)
Now, I'm feeling a little batty. Every time my email pings, my heart gets all fluttery. It's really annoying.
So, how are things going for you? Making good progress?
