Chili Queries

We spent a relaxing four days socializing in a fairly mellow way with various friends with kids and including a small party where Special K ran around Little T in the living room and Little T laughed at her. We ate lots of chili at the annual local chili cookoff.

I read several freelancing books like the Renegade Writer. After much banging on the keyboard, cutting and editing, I wrote several queries. On Wednesday I wrote the bulk of the article I was querying. Heh. Well, I need to write most of the content of the article anyway for my book. That's the beauty of it. When I sell the article to a magazine, I will tailor the article to the tone and style of the magazine. I will send my queries off once I get permissions to do quotes.

? What's a query? (Besides a question.)

It's a letter you write to ask someone "Should I send you this article or manuscript?"
