My head aches, I have double vision and I am exhausted. All this from just sending out five queries to agents for my new book. When you think about it asking a stranger to read your story and then go off and sell it is a bit weird. They must really fall in love with your story in order to do this and that is the rub. The agents get so many stories that they must surely get overwhelmed and exhausted also. Querying is like doing fast track dating. You have a short window of time to impress before the agent is introduced to the next hopeful author. At least the agents tend to be a kind bunch. The rejection letters have been very nice. And so I close my laptop for today and will continue again tomorrow.
