Ho Hum, Another Partial Request

Technically, the agent asked for the first three chapters "if no other agent has your material."  I decided to interpret that liberally as "if no agent has offered you representation" and sent the stuff.  (I explained it to him and owned up to the full and partial I had out there.) He said I'd hear from him in a few days, so watch this space on Friday for news of another rejection...

  1. URG... I feel like Lovemuffin right now, when he tells me to THINK POSITIVE FOR ONCE AND MAYBE SOMETHING POSITIVE WILL HAPPEN! This might be good, Travener! Keep your head up! (And I promise to try and take Lovemuffin's advice as well!)

    Good luck=)

  2. You get so many requests for partials, you're obviously doing something right. It's only a matter of time, Travener. I don't know why you let rejection get you so down. Hell, there's only one way to avoid rejection and the only failed writer is the one who quits. Bombs Away!

  3. They do love to send rejections on Friday though, don't they? Often at the end of the day. I half-expect the end of the letter to read: "Have a great weekend!!"

  4. I think "if no other agent has it" probably means this agent wants an exclusive read.
    Anyway who cares since it'll be a rejection, right? :)

  5. That's what I figured, Sierra, so that's why I just sent it and the hell with it. He can ask for the full but knows he can't ask for an exclusive. So I win. Up until I get rejected, when I lose. :)

  6. If no other agent has your material? What kind of alternative universe is this guy living in?
