Stuck In Query Hell

Fo the last, I dunno, months maybe, I’ve been revising my query letter.

I hate writing query letters.  Trying to explain a 117,000 word novel in 250 words is downright hell hard.  I finally got it down to about 300 words, but I’m letting it sit for a few more days before I go over it again.

Another thing–since I’ve started working less, I now have less time to write. What the hell is up with that? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that back in May, Thing 2 hurt her foot. She tripped and fell and somehow ripped the cartilage off the talus bone in her ankle. After numerous doctor visits, an x-ray and an MRI, she had surgery last week. Not to mention school’s out so my house gets trashed each day.  Thing 2 can’t do much but sit around, and Thing 3 makes a mess but doesn’t clean up after herself.  She’s not happy about having to take care of her older sis, or in her words, “being treated like a slave.” Apparently cleaning is hazardous to Thing 3’s health, because every damn time I tell her to clean, she comes up with some kind of an excuse. Either she ends up with some sort of cut, or stubs her toe, sprains her ankle, comes down with a sudden flu or whatever, which means I end up cleaning the mess when I get home. Which is why I’ve been pretty much absent from my blog.

I really do love my kids, though I tend to rant about them.

And where is Thing 1 in all of this? He’s down in Florida working at Universal Studios, having fun. Ahhh, to be young and free again.

I really need to get my query letter done so I can, one day, write full time.

I just need to get out of this query hell.

    So that’s where you’ve been! I sent you an email a while back and when I didn’t hear back from you, I checked your blog. No posts in a couple of months. I was worried! Glad to see you’re ok. Good luck with the querying!
