I Am Trying to Be a Writer

As of last night, I've queried 70 literary agents.

22 have sent form rejections.
16 no responses.
32 still pending (aka, recently queried).


I queried those 16 agents a couple months ago. Most people would say that was rejection... However I keep an open mind because some agents are back logged, take time to mull a project over, consider if their contacts would be of use for said project, etc... So I give it until January whether to add them to my Rejection pile.

I hope in that batch of 32 agents at least one wants to read the whole manuscript.

Good luck... sounds so daunting. Very awesome that you鈥檙e going for it. It sometimes boggles my mind to see certain stuff that has been selected for print, there is something for everyone, it will take time but if you keep trying it should pay off 馃憦

[@106781,Fallflower] Thank you :) It is a bit daunting but I hope it will be worth it in the end.
