About The Attitude

Posted on August 4, 2020 at 9:45 PM

As I am knee deep in my next pre-query work, I recently stumbled upon a blog by a very famous literary agent. He had advertised an entry from his  blog as THE QUERY to emulate. Well, I counted several, more than five, grammatical errors in the very query...

As a non-native speaker and writer, I expect to make grammatical errors in the language whose grammar I was barely taught.

But if the attitude of the famous literary agents is that of "do as I say and as I do," then I have this to say - show me, don't tell me! Live up to your own expectations. Or read and respond to every query with typos. Do not throw away writers' hopes and chances, because we are all human.

Not only you.
