    I actually find the intro bit the hardest, because I have to separate from the fiction of the novel and not hide behind my characters. As a child, I was naturally shy, so I never know what is appropriate to say, apart from the generic ‘I enjoy your work ethic and think we would make a great team’.

Don’t compare? List others you enjoy? It’s very nerve wracking. The only part I never had a problem with was the closing. lol. I can say good-bye.
