Querying Club

For those of you following along with my journey as a writer, I’m happy to say that I have recently joined the Querying Club. Unfortunately, the first rule of Querying Club is that you do not talk about Querying Club. (This is also the first rule of Fight Club, On Submission Club, Forgot to Brush My Teeth Club, and I Don’t Know How to Pronounce the Word “Vinyl” Club.)

Things I can’t tell you about Querying Club:

Even though I’m being a bit coy about the process for now, I hope to be able to talk more about it in the future. In the meantime, I’ll add that the help and support of my crit group, as well as my writer friends who have walked this path before me, has been invaluable.

    That was all of 2013 for me (and also why I’ve been more quiet than usual). Best of luck! It’s a crazy crazy ride.

    Color-coded spreadsheets are the BEST. I swear, mine looks like a Crayola factory exploded all over it. :)

    Fingers are crossed so, so tightly for you!!

    Querying has to be the least fun part of being a writer, but the payoff in the end is fantastic. Best of luck!

    Wait a minute — you mean there’s more than one way to pronounce “vinyl?”

    ::looks around nervously, suddenly worried that I’ve been saying it wrong::

    Anyway, quickly changing the subject, congratulations! (I’m assuming some of the other rules of Fight Club don’t apply to Querying Club, though.)

    Ooooh. I LOVE querying. Must be the salesperson in me. :)

    Haha, thanks! You’re one of the few people I know who feels that way.

    Best of luck! Was definitely my least favorite phase of the whole process (so many ups and downs out of nowhere), but something tells me it’ll be behind you for good soon enough. Fingers crossed!
