So I’ve submitted my query letter to a few agents. This is in reference to my young adult story I’ve talked about in a couple of past posts.
I texted my fiancé this morning saying how I’m 43% “I’ve got this; it’s in the bag.” and 57% “This is hell; how am I ever going to make it?” I already screwed up on a couple of the queries I sent. One of them I forget to fill in the name. I literally sent the email off and it read as this “Dear ,” That’s it. I am so embarrassed. I also sent a few queries with the end line “Attached are the fifty pages.” Like guuuuurl get it together!
Thankfully, the two queries that really mattered were flawless. I have two agencies I personally think would be a great fit for me and I made sure my queries were on point before they were sent off.
Right now I’m standing on the fence, teetering between unbridled confidence and a major freak out. I believe so strongly in the signs I received that I’m like “How could I not get a request for manuscript?” Also, I personally believe my query was pretty kick ass. It was concise, straight to the point and left the main conflict unknown. I can’t help but think If this query letter doesn’t do it, I honestly don’t know what will.
My body is vibrating with energy right now. I’ll forewarn you, I’m a very spiritual person. I don’t consider myself to be a full-fledged hippie. I don’t eat green, I can be a little rigid/set in my ways, a little too logical and I’m not always “feel the love all around us”. But I’m totally into peoples and the universe’s energy, healing properties of crystals, communicating with beyond our realm type stuff.
ANYWAY, I’ve been heavily communicating with my spirit guides during this query writing process. Anytime I went to edit the query, I made sure to channel them. And now that I’ve started querying agents, my body is buzzing with their excitement and energy. I feel like I’m going to burst.
I sound like a crazy person, trust me, I know. But I really feel like I got this. I’ve been praying a lot, communicating with my guides, channeling their energy and information. I truly believe this is going to work. I’m going to achieve my goal of becoming a published author.
It would be awful if in 2-3 months I look back on this after receiving all rejections. I’ll be so mad at myself for being naïve and foolish. But I can’t think like that right now. I’ve got to stay positive; you receive what you put out, right? I’m doing everything I can possibly think of to manifest my destiny. I swear I will be so devastated if not a single agent asks for even a partial manuscript. Can’t even think about that right now!
My brain is all over the place. I’m trying to work but all I can think about are these query letters and my excitement of the possibility my dream can come true. My query letter was pretty flippin’ good. We’ll just have to wait and see what the agents think.
Hopefully I’ll have good news to share with everyone. Thank you for reading!
(sorry this posting is all over the place!)
