Go see the Shark...


Every day I have to visit the Query Shark. This site is lorded over by the great Janet Reid of FinePrint literary. She'll take your query, slice and dice a bit and post it online for everyone else to slam....okay, they don't really slam you. Most actually offer some great advice.
I sent a query to the shark but have yet to see it go up. There are no guarentees your query will be chosen, but it doesn't matter. Every time she posts another's query I learn something. I can see my own mistakes in the queries of others. Every time I vist the Shark I learn a little bit more.
Maybe someday I'll learn to put it all to good use.
So go visit the Shark.
PS: I'm afraid of sharks so I posted a picture of my kitty instead.

OK, I'm too scared even to look. I do like the kitty photo a lot. Avoiding the shark gave me a chance to catch up on some of your blog. Two things I really appreciate about your spot: the generally upbeat feel and your brevity. This latter one is rare among writers. I think your short posts speak of discipline and focus.

I visit THE SHARK regularly,the bites she takes are gobbled up by me and consumed eagerly. I learn so much there.
I enjoyed my visit here. Glynis @ http://www.glynissmy.com
