Yes, I know everyone says that the more you write, the better you get. I thought I got it. Then I discovered, today, that that goes for query writing, too.
I've been working on my query like crazy, and I couldn't figure out why no one was helping me. I figured I should start helping others, too, instead of just posting comments, but I didn't think I was qualified to help. Decided to jump in anyway, and low and behold, I find that the query-writing process is getting easier! Who would've thunk it? It's also fun to think about the books of other people. I've been too wrapped in my own manuscript. I need to start reading more, especially now that my class is winding down and I've finished reading "The Imperfectionists" for it.
So instead of stressing about my own query, I'm going to try to help others with theirs. I'm going to read other people's books. I'm going to let my query sit for a while, then come back to it later. Then, I'll ask for query help again, and see what I get. It's sure to be a smarter way to approach the process. Not to mention more fun!
