Revision Notes XI

I'm kind of compulsively tweaking my Query. Just when I thought I had knocked it out of the park, a new way to phrase my opening comes to mind...

At least my Synopsis is under control.

  1. Funny how that happens, eh? I just tweaked my query again last night. Only a couple words though.

    I'm glad you're in the trenches with me!

  2. I've rewritten my query from scratch at least 18 times. I may be exaggerating a little...

    But, it seems it's never done. There's always a way to make it better...

  3. Stephanie: Ditto!

    Tiffany: I haven't rewritten mine all that often-- this is only really it's third incarnation, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed I won't have to use it ;)

    Shannon: You better believe I will!! :)

  4. I too am a compulsive tweaker, though not lately. Must finish revision. This is my mantra.

    Found my way over from Stephanie's.

  5. Anissa: Thanks for stopping in!

    You can do it! I'm rooting for you to get through your revision and join us in the Query Wars!

  6. My strength is not my story but my writing. That's very difficult to capture in a one paragraph query blurb.

    Just keep plugging away, Amalia! Perseverance is everything.

  7. VR: I think if your strength is your writing, it will show through exceptionally well in a query blurb :)
    Thanks for the words of encouragement!
