WHY QUERIES ARE LIKE AUDITIONS PART 2

Standard

So, as promised, part 2 of yesterday’s post. What? You didn’t read part 1? Now you’ve hurt my feelings. No you haven’t. You’re not reading this, either.

Here’s the deal. A lot of agents very generously, and sometimes very specifically, tell you what your query should look like. Here is a very generous and specific example. http://www.foliolit.com/submissions/basic-information-on-query-letters/

Now, you gotta read ever agent’s guidelines. Although I’m sure none of them think the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet is a comic monologue (see yesterday’s post. Hah! I tricked you into reading it. No I didn’t. You’re too smart for that.), nearly every one of them has a slightly different idea of what a good query looks like, although I’m sure including the lyrics to ‘Happy Birthday’ isn’t one of those ideas. See yesterday’s post. Indulge me.
