#querytip If you're querying me with a narrative that has strong #ownvoices overtones, but tell me literally ZERO personal info about yourself, and I can't find you on Google? That's a red flag to me.

A millennial is not just a person in their 20s/30s. Millennials were born between 1980-2000. They don't exist outside of their time. A 20-something in 1994 is not a millennial, for example. (I'm a millennial and I was 6 in 1994, FYI.) #querytip #lifetip

#querytip I'm not interested in your Big Picture Statement. Let the story speak for itself/dictate the statement, not the other way around.

#querytip: I'm not an abstract girl. I can't get into your book if the MC is on an existential inner journey/exploring consciousness~
