As is my usual procedure, I’ll be closing to queries over the holidays so that I can spend time getting caught up on reading I’ve already requested, and so that I don’t come back to work in 2012 with a backlog already in place. With that said, the final day to send your query for review this year will be Friday, December 16th. Any queries received after the 16th will be deleted unread. I’ll reopen for queries on Monday, January 9th.
It’s one thing when your writing is going well, and you’re on a roll, tossing chapters off with the ease of Carrie Bradshaw-esque bon mots about shoes, but what do you do when it’s not going well, when the thought of sitting down to your favored writing device is as uncomfortable to imagine as getting out of a warm, cosy bed on a chilly morning? What do you do?
