Querying is not just hard…it is queragony. It’s the waiting, you see. Waiting is the worst. You send out the equivalent of a love note, do you like me? Yes or No? And now you must wait for a response.
Sometimes you feel like you are running at a slightly faster pace than the rest of the world and waiting for them to catch up. Your brain is performing an Irish River Dance and everyone else’s is doing a Country Two-Step. Although…a full pot of coffee with a chocolate dipped granola bar chaser doesn’t help.
You knew when you started that writing was not a quick endeavor, it’s a slow process and finishing a manuscript is only the beginning. Waiting is a major part of it and the only way to fight time is to fill it as best you can. Start on something new; take a vacation, read good books, or…blog about it.
Beat queragony…don’t let it beat you.
And that, my friends, is the Word.
