#querytip and #synopsistip
They are two different things. Do your research. Your query is not a synopsis.

Also, YOU GOT THIS!

Don't break the fourth wall. Don't do it. Do not break that wall. A thread. #writingtip #querytip

Breaking the fourth wall (having the MC speak directly to the reader) is a very difficult thing to do in writing and should only be used for specific themes and voices. 1/3

Hi #WritingCommunity! Just a friendly #querytip - there is a difference between a query letter and a synopsis. I've been seeing a lot of queries where the author is mixing up the two. 1/3 of #amquerying thread

#querytip We like spoilers. We want to know what your protagonist needs to overcome! That usually the most unique part of your story, so don't hide it from us.
