Seven Months In

So little has been happening that I actually forgot that yesterday was the seven-month anniversary of AgentQuest (TM).  I haven't had a query response in weeks.  That whole boatload of queries I sent the first week of January just seems to have disappeared down a wormhole.  I feel like re-querying the whole bunch of them.  Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke.

And Blogger seems to have reduced the number of font size choices.


  1. I think it is time to send out another batch!

  2. I agree with Amber. At least you still have your sense of humor. I just got a rejection on a short story. It made me feel pretty lousy. I feel like a bum. A big pretender.

  3. I still have the same font size choices on blogger.

    You might actually want to consider following up on some of those January queries at some point, especially if you sent any to agencies that promise a response. Right now I have 50% response rate to queries sent in January, which is a whole lot better than my 20% response rate to December queries.

  4. Almost every agent I have ever followed up with has responded. Usually it's an "uh, no," but on three occasions, the follow-up yielded a request for my ms.

    So go on and nudge 'em. There's a special joy that being a nudge brings. Besides, no's are like zeros. No matter how many you get, they're all equal. Survive one, you survive them all.
