I know it's hard.
I know it hurts.
I know nothing hurts more than thinking your baby project is being rejected because you can't write a certain way for a query. I know.
I'm there. Right now. It doesn't look like it's ever going to go away. Like I'm stuck in this pit forever. Maybe you're there too.
Here's a news flash: no one likes the query process. Lots of people say it's a broken system. Well, maybe. But here's the deal: it's worked so far. It's working now. So it can't really be broken, can it? It's hard to be a writer; we have to be multimedia gurus, editors, advertisers, and talented in both prose and summery. Here's the thing:
We do it anyway.
So yes, have your days when you want to throw the querying process off a cliff. Have your moments when you cry, rage, hurt, and vent (if you're wise, this WON'T take place on the internet). Eat chocolate. Drink good wine - or in my case, soda. Then pick yourself up, because this isn't the end. We'll get published someday, because we know it takes more than talent - it takes those gallons of sweat, blood and tears.
Just my thoughts for the day. :)
