Jumping Off the Cliff

I just finished tweaking my query letter.  I'd post it, but I've got enough self-doubt dragging at me already (as in I tweaked this letter to the point of walking around my house muttering 'round n 'round' over and over).  Tomorrow morning, I send out my first query.  Pray to whatever god you honor for me, okay?

And just for fun, here's how I described the query process to my husband yesterday...

"I'm almost ready to run to the edge of the cliff and jump off.  Here's hoping that this time my parachute opens or someone catches me.  I'm not sure I can take it hitting every branch on the way down again.  You know, crash crash crash crash before I go splat on the pavement."

Hey, he laughed.  :shrug:  I guess you had to be there.  Or maybe you've been there already.  ;o)


  1. LOL! Good luck with that query! Remember, we all have stacks of rejections. If you get one too, then just send out your next letter. It'll be ok!

  2. Sending out queries is a big step. Congrats on being brave enough to do it!
