The Five Stages of Querying

One of the Slushpile's followers / lurkers / commentors posted a nice article about The Five Stages of Querying.

She also gives some advice regarding the hardest part of querying:  waiting for a response!

Thanks Rick. I got a lot of nice feedback on the article. Thanks for linking.

I agree with all the stages except the acceptance. My emotional reaction depends not on how much bourbon is in the cabinet, but on how much wine is left in the box in the fridge.

I'd post a comment on the original, but that was days ago. I really enjoyed the link though. Thanks Anne and Rick.

I have already cycled through all five stages twice, and I am still drafting my query. I haven't even sent it out yet!
