Agent Query Update

Nineteen out.  Four negatives returned.  I’m forcing myself to look upon this process as a job interview.  The query letter is my resume and I’m sending it out to prospective employers hoping that they and I are a good fit.

It’s a nice analogy to hold on to.  At what point though will a true sense of frustration set in?  “Will I never get a job/agent?”  And then after the frustration, I suppose, will be the reminder that this HAS to be accomplished.  I’m not going to go on literary welfare or give up writing or give up a lifelong dream of being a published working author.

I took a vacation day today from work to get some household things done, inside and outside.  With the continual rain pouring down, I’m left to my indoor resources.  One of them: sending out more query letters.

    I’m also on this subject on my blog right now. It’s a long journey.

    Dr. B, you are so right. Hopefully I’m not being cliched when I refer to the old proverb of a journey of a thousand miles beginning with a single step. What i’m finding is that it is not just the first step…but the ability to take the next and the next and the next. Continued success to you as well.

    Keep on stepping. Either you’ll find them or they’ll find you. (or both)
