Patience

When you run out of time and don't know how to make more, how do you deal with it? I've had all Week to work on my query and tweak it some following the wonderful advice of my blogging buddies. But alas! I didn't have time.

I wanted to submit my query this morning, but I just didn't feel like mine was 100% as perfect as I want it to be for all these wondrous agents to view. I am editing now and hoping I can make it beautiful before 4:00 today.

Did anyone else feel that way? Or has anyone else missed a dead line that was really important but you just didn't make it in time?

  6. Did you send it in at 4??

    Just gotta let it fly girl. It's hard if you're not 100% confident but I don't think any writer ever is.

    Good luck!

    1. I know, Kelley. You're right. Sometimes it feels like it will never be right. Let it go. Let it go. Let. It. Go......, right

  7. I can't tell you how many times I've written and re-written my query. Just the other day I went back and read an old one and I actually liked it better than my current one. Go figure.
