I’m stupid-grateful to have made it in to Query Kombat this week but more so (ready for the gush?) for the incredible community I’ve been a part of by contributing to and following its hashtag.
Sure, the feedback on my query and first 250 of my MS is fantastic. Invaluable, really. But the friends I’ve made and the list of new possible CPs is something you don’t find everywhere, even on other awesome websites of which I am a member. Twitter contests like Query Kombat and The Writer’s Voice always give me the ooey-gooey feels for the sense that we’re all in this together, the shared commiseration at a rejection, and the dogged support to keep going.
Thanks, writing community!! Now, on to the next pot of coffee.
