Okay, so here’s a quote from another one of my favorite old 80’s movies. Let’s see who gets it first.
“I’m setting bootie twaps.”
“You mean boobie traps.”
“That’s what I said, bootie twaps.”
Oh the perils that we writers can be put through when trying to find an agent (as if writing a novel isn’t mental strain enough).
So last night I have this epiphany, if you will, and the query that I’ve been struggling with for nearly a month just came together. The tone, and which details to include, all finally flowed together and that proverbial light bulb clicked on inside my head. I won’t go so far as to say the Angels started to sing my praises, but for a moment it felt like they might be warming up. And then…
It dawned on me that I’ve spent so much time worrying about my query letter that I forgot I still need to revamp my synopsis. And this is what I looked like when that realization hit.
Yep, my hair turned into a mustache and bushy eyebrows. I may have even said rachet frachet more than my fair share of times.
One day, we’ll look back on these days and laugh…right?
