Yes that misspelling in the title was intentional. Last night I read an old draft of what I thought might be a good potential query letter for my book and realized that I used the word "encounter" in some form at least three times in the same letter. . . verb abuse! Sure, encounter is a nice word, but come on, three times in one letter. Three times in a Scrabble game would be amazing, three times in four paragraphs is very bad.
This was a good lesson to me that putting my writing away for a while before reviewing it again is the right approach. It also reinforced how much I have to learn and how lucky I am for the Internet. I'm finding all kinds of good advice out there to improve my writing. Always room for improvement!
Back to work!
