It might help to remember that agents aren't looking at just one query either. Nor is reading queries their only job. Sure, some have interns or assistants, but they're weeding out the queries that don't stand a chance - the rest still go to the agent for final decision. Then they have partials and fulls to read, working with their current clients, keeping up with industry trends and changes, yada yada yada.

Being a writer is a good way to learn patience. ;)
"It seems rather like wanting to be ... a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip." - Roger Zelazny

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.
