I’ve gotten to the point where I’d love to start a query like this:
Dear Jane/John Doe,
I’m emailing you today because I think you’re photo is rad.
I’m sending you this query, because why the hell not? I mean, seriously, you seem like a nice lady/fells. You tweet. You facebook. What do you think? Let’s do this!
Obviously, I won’t–but it makes me giggle when I think about doing it. It also helps to have these obscure thoughts when I’m feeling hopeless. You know, remove the pedestal and all that.
No matter how many times I go out and query, it never seems to get any easier…
Never give up! Never surrender… but maybe nap and have a cookie.
