Am blogging to show what it’s like when writers drop articles and pronouns like “I” and “the” and “a.” Happens lots in queries. Seems they don’t have time to write a proper one. Maybe going for familiarity or possibly typed letter in five seconds. Don’t know why so common. Even if novel is breezy, still means author can write proper query without imitating telegrams.
Excess informality. Dangerous in business letter. Killer of queries.
