I've been querying, revising and resubmitting, and waiting (and waiting...) with a manuscript that had R&R requests from several agents. It's been a task, to say the least, keeping everything sorted as to which R&R's I wanted to pursue, which agents had which requested versions, which agents have yet to be queried with this way better verson, etc.
In the midst of me learning new patterns in which to anxiously twiddle my thumbs... my inbox lit up with the pink 'full request' marker I use in Gmail.My heart skipped several beats, thinking it might be a reply from an agent who has an R&R from me....it was a reply from an agent who had the very first version of the manuscript, which I sent them 14 months ago.I'd nudged them once, a year ago, with no response.It turns out agents do respond to manuscripts they've had in their inbox for ages.I'd like to now present you with this well-earned ticket: YOU WERE RIGHT.**redeemable for 1 prize at the You Were Right prize booth. No cash value. Void where prohibited.Believe it or not, after all the work I've done on this manuscript, all the revision, all the waiting, it was really nice having a surprise reply that said, 'It's not for me, but I still had fun reading it.'
