I need a title for this story. It's one I have plans on publishing at some point in the future. That kind of makes a tittle a must. Other stories I can let sit with no titles. Their fate is unknown. Not this story. This also means my query has to be good. Another road block. I'm a little stumped about what to write for the query. I have a first line for the query but after that it fades off.
I'm not completely stumped though. I could start off with a synopsis of the story. Get it summarized and then start hacking away. It's advice I've seen recommended when trying to write a query. Not a bad idea, after all agents and publishers do request synopsis so those are good to know how to do as well.
Enough babbling and putting off the query. Let's give this a shot. Feel free to throw out ideas. Writers thrive on constructive criticism and advice. We like getting it. It makes us squee and jump back into writing with renewed vigor.
