The Dread

We all have at least one nemesis in our lives, some have more, some less.  I'm sure I have more than one, but right now, my biggest one is rearing its ugly head... The Query Letter. Yikes!

Yes, Nathanael and Saydi are getting to the point where I'm going to have to hunker down and write the most dreaded thing in world -- my nemesis, the query.

It's been in the back of my mind all weekend and every time it pops up, my stomach tightens and a shiver runs up my spine.  How is it that I can write a whole novel in a month or less? But the query is my biggest mental challenge and always manages to detach my brain from any capability to form a sentence.

Here's my plan, I've got about sixty more pages of edits, then I'll tackle the query... keyboard key indents in forehead, then I'll go back over Saydi and Nathanael with fresh eyes. 

See, I have a plan, now if only my fingers could focus instead of shake in fear.

Have a great day.
