How Long Am I Supposed to Wait?
It's been three, fourth months since the Nice Agent Lady undertook to go through my ms. with an eye to sending me suggested areas for improvement (as we would have put it at my former employer, the Very Important Organization). In our last colloquy I told her to take her time, but still... Since I promised not to query further while she was working on it, I'm sort of stuck in limbo. Despite its constant flow of heartache, I sort of miss querying. I spend so much time working for TOM (the online Man) that I'm too exhausted at day's end to even think about, much less write, my WIP. (Thank you, poverty.) I'm sort of thinking giving her to September and then breaking my promise (heck, this is business after all), given that summer is a tough time to query anyway. I don't know. Is that fair, or should I feel like a jerk for even contemplating this?
