I have to admit: I felt a little guilty after yesterday's post. Okay, it may be that I'm a little methodical when it comes to writing and writing-related things. I'm not that way with everything, though. Like if I'm going to buy a camera, I'm not going to research to find the best one. I just hope someone I know has already done the research enough to make a recommendation, or I choose the one that LOOKS the best. If I need to choose a doctor, I'm pretty much going to choose the one that either a) has the coolest-sounding name or b) has the easiest to remember phone number. (Oh, admit it. You've chosen this way before, too. Right?)
SOoooo, I know what it feels like to have the methodical way feel daunting. Unreachable. Frustrating. I sincerely hope that yesterday's post didn't make anyone feel those things! Here's the thing I had hoped to accomplish: that my theory would go into that holding bin in your mind reserved for querying, along with everyone else's theories you've read about, where it can tumble around with the others. When it comes time to use query information, you empty the bin and see what sticks. It could be someone's entire theory. It could be the parts of five different people's theories that work best for you and your personality. The important thing is to use the parts that work FOR YOU. Whether that be all the things I did or none of the things I did.
Then, just do it! And while you're at it, think of this quote that I absolutely love.
Does anything more need to be said? I think not.
But do stop for long enough to stare at these pretties. Because oh, my goodness. I can't stop with the staring at the pretty.
