I have decided to query agents with my latest novel. I had planned to simply pep up my synopsis and send it on its way, but I couldn't remember the story! So now I am reading my novel for the first time since before Christmas.
I thought it would be an easy recall the story and write the synopsis type job, but as I read, I can see parts I would love to rewrite. I'm battling against myself at the moment, because this poor story has gone through so many rewrites over several years I can't see how I could do better.
I still have half the book to read, so the battle isn't over yet. On the positive side, I think I might have nailed the synopsis... maybe.
Do you find things you want to change on your final read through?
Have you ever forgotten the story you told?
Do you have any general querying/submitting advice?
(UK and US methods vary greatly, so some advice might
not be suitable for me, but will definitely help others)
