WOW. Being on The Write Practice and commenting on other writing blogs has really helped me get around! About a week and a half ago, I commented on Random Writing Rants asking if anyone had advice for me about my query letter. And, amazingly, the author of the blog (Michelle) offered to help me out! I e-mailed her my query letter and she e-mailed me back a couple of times with questions about the letter and my story. Together we came up with a totally new query letter! And she's going to post it this Friday so other people can comment with suggestions. I'm so excited!
Click HERE for more info. And be sure to stop by her blog on Friday!

I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
