Buffet Style.....You Pick!

I have an idea. The idea may fizzle out like a wet firecracker, but I like to try new things (and I can always find new firecrackers!) Anyway, I'd like to try some writing tips on topics you may want to read about... buffet style, so to speak. It could be about character or plot development, or even tips on the publishing end of the business, like where do you go to find magazine or book publishers or agents, how to write a query letter, etc. (even though there are PLENTY of blog sites and others who post about that one... I don't want to run that one into the ground). Anyway.... let me know your suggestion. If I can get a few responses, I'll pick one to write about. Then I'll work my way through the list. AND if I don't think I'm qualified to write about a particular topic, I will try to find you a site that does. Sound good?

Okay then, let's give it a try and see if this works. :-)

I was looking at a writing workshop for doctors wanting to become writers. Part of the application process is submitting a query letter. As part of the workshop, you get access to 10 literary agents, critique of your query letter, and critique of up to three chapters. I don't have three chapters of anything so I thinks it's premature for me to attend (and spend the $1200) until next year. It'll be a good goal. So what is a query letter and how do you write one?
