Holy crap, I just submitted my first query letter to an agent.
Holy crap. I hit the send button and immediately a wave of panic came over me. I’m seriously attempting to get an agent for my book? It’s too long. It doesn’t have a unique plot. Holy crap, holy crap, holy crap.
I can’t believe I hit the send button. No going back, now, though. I read through the agents blog for a while before I sent the letter. I made sure I only sent what the agent asked for. But now it’s a waiting game. I’m glad my goal for November is just one a day. If I have a panic attack every time I hit the send button there’s no way I can do more than one a day.
I know the likelihood of getting requests for pages or partials or (holy crap!) the full ms is slim, especially for the first couple of letters I send out, but the thought of rejection is still incredibly scary. But, on the bright side, most successful authors are rejected a ton of times before they get an agent or a publisher. So…
Let the rejection begin!
