Am I being helpful in the Query Critiques subforum, or am I just startling people with my Wall of Text bombings?

    I'm not agented. =( And it's only my opinions; I don't have any experience sending out queries. I'm still trying to polish mine before I get down into it. I always try to preface any questions that come up with the fact that I don't have any actual experience, just thoughts and observations.

    I try to offer up some help where I can, but I'm well aware the opinions could be damaging if I say something that turns out to be the opposite of the reality. Possi...

    (seems there a text limit)

    Possibly I'm not making it clear in my posts, but I should make it a point to not sound like an authority. I just notice things and try to help where I can.

    I've only been over there so much because I lost my job and have been purposefully avoiding my writing, so I don't get too caught up in it and forget to look for work. I can definitely stop if I'm doing more harm than good; it just makes the loneliness hurt a little less i...

    I can definitely stop if I'm doing more harm than good; it just makes the loneliness hurt a little less if I'm helping someone.

    That was part of the reason for asking, really, to see if I'm being an actual help or a harm. I can quit if I'm overstepping my bounds.

Another nine-inches fell today. If anyone out there has any of that global warming everyone tells me about, please send some of it my way.

    Technically it's called climate change and it is probably the reason for the crazy winter. So, that extra 9 inches might be because of global warming :-)

    Last summer was the coolest on record in Marquette.
    This winter has already been the longest on record, and shows no sign of letting up yet.
    I'm, going to need a second mortgage to pay my snow-plowing bill when it arrives.

    Climate change alters the jet stream, which changes weather patterns. Rising ocean temps affect the jet stream, hence the term, "global warming." But the cold winters are caused by stagnant air that is trapped by the jet stream.

    I've been sitting on the query for Tenth Realm for a while, and the one for Low Road was polished up last night. Figured I should post them at some point. :)

Was intending for this draft to be about 50k, but I'm already at 60k and still have about another third to write. Errmm, oops.

    You think that's bad? I started my latest aiming for 80k and ended up at 165.

Sometimes we regret staring AgentQuery and making newbie writers feel like the query process is the end-all-be-all of their credibility as a writer *drinks poison*

    Don't feel bad. When you started this site, it probably was. Things change and this site reflects that.

    Not at all; the agent route is still the best route to go. The other methods are no less credible, but definitively harder to be successful at.
