Two f-ing days! Fio has been writing and rewriting a crappy query letter for two f-ing days, and it still doesn't read right. She's written a 400-page novel, but no one will look at even the first twenty pages of it if the one-page query letter isn't super-duper special.

It's like there's a tiny keyhole in a big door, and Fio has to figure out how to configure a key to fit it so the door will swing open and her four hundred pages can enter the sanctum sanctorum, which is, of course, an agent's office.

Fio is doomed.

Fio’s mind is dry
Her heart is week
She’s spent it all on the novel
At the elusive sanctorum
Through a keyhole she peeks
Maybe she should just f-ing grovel
