And Another

I was going to post about my current reading habits (dull, I know), but just found a rejection waiting in my inbox. It was from an agent in the batch I sent out last night, so at least she was on the ball. And it was kind.

I'm not bummed. Not really. Okay, well kind of. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I'm letting discouragement get the best of me. I just wouldn't mind getting a partial request soon. (That means the agent would request part of my manuscript to read and stew over.) Just to know somebody's interested, and that my query is good enough to catch somebody's attention.

Pfft.

7 rejections; 10 out

Patience. That's the best advice I can give. Remember there's tons of agents out there and plenty more queries to send. It will happen. Even by playing the odds, it has to happen at some point.

*hands you a brownie*

have you posted your query letter up on AW? I know they can be very helpful in Query Hell. I plan on using that when I'm polishing mine.
