I’ve been a little brain dead since completing my third novel, Cadet. I have allowed myself a few weeks of separation with the novel and am excited to get started on the query process.
I’ve decided that the query adventure is similar to starting a new workout program. If you’re like me, you send out one or two queries at a time and then take a deep breath and wait a few days. Then you open up your query letter and tweak it (again) and send out another query and wait.
When I started the last workout program, T25 this time, I had a similar routine. I assessed the existing material (butt and thighs) and dove into one or two workouts and then reassessed. I did a few more workouts and waited a few days before re-evaluating.
I’m still waiting for some shrinkage to occur (c’mon Shaun T, we’re friends by now aren’t we?) but I persist through squat after squat and DVD after DVD and tell myself to be patient. It will happen.
I will be reminding myself to do the same once I hit the first ‘send’ with my query. Be patient. It will happen.
In the meantime, keep on writing:) And exercising!
