Back Into The Query Trenches
Here we are! After almost three months of revising, I'm nearly ready to begin querying again. Only nearly because I'm still fidgeting with the query and giving my MS one last read-through. I'm sure that last read-through will turn into a dozen more.
Earlier this year I said my word for 2013 is patience. I seem to be taking it very seriously.
Much to my surprise, I've managed to ignore almost every contest and opportunity to send off my query. Last night I wondered if it was just my way of stalling. I'm no stranger to querying too soon, but I definitely did learn my lesson the second time around. So much so that the thought of making the same mistake again makes me want to weep. Fool me twice, shame on me. Is that how it goes? I'm just having a difficult time believing, though I still do love this MS. I guess more than I loved the first because we've been together since August 2011 and still going strong.
We're having some trust issues, but I'm sure once I'm in the thick of it again all will be well. I hope all is well for you and your MS, too.
