Fun and learning on twitter: #queryfail

Hi all!

Yes, STILL head down on thesis. Nearly there. I *hope* to send the draft to my committee a week from tomorrow.

But I get to buy my cap and gown today! Squeee!

Anyway, the point of this post is to let all you querying writers know about #queryfail day on Twitter: TODAY. Right Now.

A bunch of editors and agents (so far Colleen Lindsay, Jeremiah Tolbert, Mari Adkins, Lauren MacLeod, Greg Daniel, Angela James...and more to come) have decided to post brief examples of queries that worked and didn't work, all day long, under the twitter feed #queryfail. For those uninitiated in twitter, go here to follow!

It looks to be useful info on what not to do, particularly.
