I’ve been busy at work these days, and I haven’t had a lot of time to dedicate to draft four. Because I have had five or ten minutes here and there, I’ve instead focused on revising my synopsis.
And now, eight (count them, eight) drafts in, I’m pretty happy with it. I’m ready to start building a query letter.
Once that’s done, I’m considering submitting to Query Shark as a dry run, prior to beginning the actual query process.
However, I’m terrified of making my work public, for fear of – gasp – theft. I’m sure this is a common fear. I’ve participated in #writechat discussions about it. Plus it strikes me as a rational response to putting months worth of blood sweat and/or tears out there in random cyberspace.
Anyone else feel this way?
Anyone else take the Query Shark plunge?
