I hate

writing query letters.

Update: Daniel likes the book, Gary likes the book, Leonore doesn't know when she'll be able to read it, draft of query letter done. So the query will go out soon, and then I'll put the whole matter entirely out of my mind and not think about it again until someone, preferably an agent, mentions it to me. Book? What book? Oh, that one! Oh, yeah, I'd forgotten all about it.

I'll tell you, there's nothing quite like getting back a self-addressed envelope to clarify in a hurry whether you're a glass-half-empty or a glass-half-full kind of guy. (Most of them, not so good, but if I'm not mistaken my agent requested a partial via my SASE, so I can't complain.)

Best of luck, David!

Well, the ones I have in mind take e-mail queries, so I won't be getting the SASEs back.

Instead, I'll be getting e-mails, which are even faster. :)
