And so begins the waiting. . .

Two days ago I finally sent my PDF to an agent.
Go me.

The irksome part of this whole process is the waiting. Partially because I obviously want to know NOW if you think what I wrote was decent and in part because if they hate what you wrote, there is no firm “NO”.

Basically, you send in your manuscript and if they like it they will contact you back in 6-8 weeks.
If they’re not interested, they just leave you hanging.

THAT’S SO FRUSTRATING.

I would prefer a rejection letter, it doesn’t even have to be personal.
I find rejection letters, a tangible reminder of failure, to be an extremely motivating thing. When I got my rejection letter from NYU, as a high school senior, I tacked that thing to my wall in my bedroom and I even put it up in my dorm.
It sounds sadistic, but I used it as a reminder to work a little bit harder at my goals.

Any how, I’ll keep you all posted on how this turns out.

Also, starting next week I’m going to be trying out a new format for this blog, so stay tuned!!!
