Countless rewrites and editing sessions later, I’m fairly certain my script is done. You’d think the big celebration would begin, but far from it. One hard part is over, and the next, even harder part is underway.
I’ll do one more round of feedback from a handful of trusted colleagues, and maybe even one or two professional critiques. I have a few in mind I’d like to try – any recommendations? While that’s going on, the great assembling of a query letter will commence.
As eager as I am to get the script into interested hands, it’s vital I really take my time with this. Simply put, this query letter must absolutely knock the socks off anybody who reads it. My hope is that the query makes the script practically irresistible; that not reading it would really make you feel like you’re missing out on something of significance.
I’m not saying my script is the be-all, end-all, but I feel pretty positive about it. The task at hand now is to convey that confidence in the body of the query.
Wish me luck.
