I hate queries

Working on them...you never get it right. You cannot satisfy everyone (or apparently anyone, for that matter.) Too much plot, not enough, too little voice, way too much... ugh. Really, it is a broken system. What agents ought to be asking for are two-page synopses instead of queries. But, such is the baloney we have to muddle through. At this point, I think I'm losing ground. It is damn near impossible to take 72000 words and make a ~250 word "you want to buy me!" pitch that works. It's random, I swear. Being an IT dude, I'm used to "do this, then do this," but that's not how queries work...if they do work...I wouldn't know.

Makes me want to barf. Seriously!
