Frodo of the Nine Fingers, and the Queries of Doom

I hate writing queries. I’d rather be judged by my work, not by my description of my work.

But these days, queries are inescapable, at least if you want to reach some of the bigger publishers.

This week I have a stack of queries to send out. I need to finish writing them. So what have I been doing?

Lurking on the SCBWI boards, of course. And catching up on chores. And doing almost anything else imaginable so that I don’t have to spend time with queries…

Which means that tomorrow, I’ll have to spend a few hours with them, instead of getting to do them in small chunks... sigh…
