Minutes to midnight, or, How I got through my fourth draft and made the leap toward querying agents

There's a cocktail of anxiety that's one part excitement, one part worry, and two parts "Remain calm, it'll be fine". It all comes from realizing that you're steps away from starting the query process. I've made changes to Chapter 1 (4th draft!) and I've got my query letter started. It's only a matter of time now before I can take the big step in the writing process. I'm completely prepared to not hear anything from the first (four-hundred) agents I query, because that's the nature of the business, but I've got my fingers crossed that I'll find somewhere to fit in.

Wish me luck :)
