Drafting a query letter is hard O_O I'm glad I'm getting this out of the way now!

shrunk my MS's word count from 96K to 79K. *sigh*
annab3llaGood job! I'm sure that wasn't an easy task.

The word "that" is kind of like a support column in the middle of a room: sometimes it provides important structure and support, but mostly you just run into it wondering what it's doing there.
DarkeHahahaha! Agreed, along with the word 'had'.

SnowGlobeI went through my MS and stripped out half the "that" and "but" in it. I was shocked how many there were.

I don't see any YA urban or paranormal queries getting accepted by agents anymore. Does that mean those genres are out this year!? Hope not because that is what I write!!!
Cheryl B. DaleIt may be the agents are just getting pickier about what they DO accept because the number of books being published by the big pubs seems a lot fewer nowadays. If your story is great and your writing is up to par, it should get requests no matter what genre it is. Remember, different genres' popularity always have peaks and valleys. Don't get discouraged!

SnowGlobeEven if they are out this year, it takes longer than a year to get through this process in any case, so chin up.

Haven't been on lately. I feel like I've been neglecting my query writing duties.
I don't know how to do this thing.
DarkeWhat are you having problems with?
