Ok, I cheated a teeny tiny bit today. In the UK we don't generally send out queries but I'd already planned a post for S and Q is a hard letter to match up with a writery word (please don't now flood me with millions of Q words. It'll only make me look and feel beyond stupid).
And it's my blog so I'll cheat if I want to.
So Q is for Querying... and also Submitting.
I'm submitting my book at the moment. I've done this before and I'm sure I'll do it again. I was 20 the first time I submitted a book and I cringe when I think about it. It was shiiiiiiit. Really, really shit. I'm not surprised it was rejected (although at the time I obviously thought it was a work of brilliance). I am surprised the agencies didn't track me down and destroy my computer and every pen, pencil or crayon in the house to prevent me ever writing another word again.
Yes, it really was that bad.
I've submitted my books to agencies on and off during the past ten years and I hope my writing becomes slightly less shit with each one.
Go on then. Make me look stupid and give us a Q word for writing.
