Torture. Whose Turn is it Tonight?

Eh, I got some words out and I threw another blow at Rue's midsection.  We're both still reeling from it.  Today wasn't for torturing Rue, though.  It was for torturing myself.  I reworked the query for the umpteenth time and ended up with a version I kinda like.  At this point, even those versions I liked now suck, so I'm happy with 'kinda like'.  Needless to say, I sent one out tonight.  We'll see if it garners a happy response or a big Bronx cheer.

How're things in your little part of the world tonight?  Anything torturing you?

ETA:  How stupid is it for a writer to use who's instead of whose in the title for a friggin' blog post that will be on the internet for like ever.  D'oh.  (BTW, I fixed it, but it will live forever in the URL.)


  1. I won't even go there, B.E. - torture seems to be the daily grind of late!

    Good luck with that revised query - and very glad to hear you threw words at Rue, back in the saddle :)

  2. I hate to be a Grinch, but the Holidays are driving me nuts. So many things on my to-do list!
    I hope your query ends up getting a ton a requests!

  3. Ha, I actually almost did the who's/whose thing earlier, so don't feel bad. Hmmm... torture. Redoing my outline and more editing.

  4. Queries are terrible. Good luck!

    Also, if it makes you feel better, I was emailing my critique partners about our GROUP chat and typed GROOP instead.

    Serious fail.
