Does anyone like writing queries? I mean, never once while writing a query (I've attempted to write five or six so I'm clearly an expert) have I posted it for peer review thinking 'This is gonna be amazing! They're all gonna love it!' It's more like 'here's that ball of dirt I've been polishing for you. maybe it's better this time? Maybe? Oh no, it was better the first time, okay.' Don't get it twisted, I'm grateful to the people who peer review for queries here, but that doesn't mean that I don't want to set myself on fire at least a little bit. I"m pretty sure there's someone out there who actually likes it and if so like...what drugs are you on and where can I get them?
