Re: How much personal information to include in a query

I think it's sufficient. You don't want blather. You can say you're a creative writing major.

If it's not for them it won'...

Well, I must admit, I'm Irish Canadian. Which is like a normal Irishman, just buried under a few feet of snow.

Re: Second Hand Books

Dangerous question for me. I have, um, twenty thousand used books. But lots of new ones, too. :) And if I had money there'd be even more.

Re: Writer's Block

I have a feeling that Writer's Block doesn't exist. Which is not to say that writers don't get blogged... but just that writers get blocked for thousands of different reasons, both personal and technical. But we like to clump things together.
