    It's not easy., And while I could rewrite the query, that wouldn't change the problems that caused you to write it as you have. As Ernest Hemingway observed, “They can’t yank a novelist the way they can a pitcher. A novelist has to go the full nine, even if it kills him.”

    As you become more skilled with your writing your ability to create a query blurb will track that, and the problem will solve itself. What good would it do to write a perfect query if the first paragraph of the story got a rejection?

    Hang in there. It will come,
