Climbing Out on a Limb
My life changes today. Big change. I'm working full-time and that is a huge praise.
In honor of this change, I decided this past Friday to do something different. To do something I've been putting off for awhile.
Mostly put off because I was chicken.
What did I do?
I took the plunge. Yeah, I finally did. I queried an agent who I've been petrified of querying forever.
I'm not giving names here. We all have our agents who stand out in our minds. You know the ones. The ones you would die to have represent you but you know if you send in your latest WIP, you'll die when they reject it. Because then it will seem like the end of the road. After all, if they don't want it, will anyone else?
If you read some of the comments in my last post, you will be encouraged as I was.
Some people like black shoes. Some like brown.
So this agent may or may not like my query. What's important here is I tried. Finally. And I'll live with the verdict. After all, maybe my story isn't black or brown.
Maybe I'll need to find that person who likes pink.
When was the last time you went out on a limb with your writing?
