The Waiting Game
Right now, I'm engaged in the waiting game. I decided to only submit my work to two agents whom I carefully, precisely hand-picked because both matched exactly what I'm looking for in an agent. Luckily, both requested fulls and I'm now into the second week of waiting. I've become a serial e-mail checker. I leave the computer on for too many hours when I'm rooms away and wait to hear my adorable Incredimail notifier meow, bark, sing, chirp or moo that I have an e-mail. So far, I've been innundated with requests from a Nigerian bank to send money to my long-lost cousin, notes from other young writers, questions from clients and e-mails from my university. Those are all wonderful but I'm waiting for the agent responses. If they reject my work, I'll then be back to rifling through Jeff Herman's agent guide. If they like my work, you'll hear my partying from whatever state you inhabit. :) Anyone else waiting on agent queries or fulls?
