Tuesday Poems For #Writers #Inspiration #WritingCommunity – Querying – A Scary Thing

But I Smile Anyway...

Another poem inspired by Lucy of Blonde Write More! Thinking about the choices we make regarding publishing!

Querying
A scary thing
Putting your words 
In front of them

The critical eyes
The knowing minds
The hope they like
What they read and find

The letter than
Just needs a hook
To get them excited
About your book

The endless wait
Will they even like?
Ignore you or say
Just take a hike?

Will you get the note
That says 'Sorry, no,
Not right for us
But mind how you go."

Or the one 
That encourages
But still says no
Gets you in a tizz

It could be one
That says "I'm in!
Send me your novel
Let the journey begin!"

Querying
A scary thing
Putting your words 
In front of them
