I am 300 words short of half-way through an 80,000 word manuscript. I have been dreading the idea of a query letter. All of the suggestons I have seen so far have been vague. In fact, just thinking about the query letter has put me on the verge of a panic attack, bad enough to make me question my desire to finish the novel. After all, what if my query is horrible, and the agents hate it so much that they warn all of the other agents they know against it.
Thank you.
