Last night I began looking at websites like QueryShark, Writer's Digest and GalleyCat. I read some letters from 23 Literary Agent Query Letters That Worked and took a stab at drafting one. Now I just have to find an agent who's interested in memoir, pop culture, marriage, depression, Mexican Americans, family issues, dogs and/or women's humor. (There is such a thing as "women's humor," isn't there?) Writers can receive dozens, if not hundreds, of rejections before finding an agent who'll commit to their book, and I'm already 47 years old so I'd better get started!
