It's the cycle of writing... Waiting and having patience. Sometimes I feel like the traditionally publishing route is extremely slow from the writer's point of view. The agents feel like they are moving quickly because they are multi-tasking like crazy! Answering queries, rejecting, reading partials and full manuscripts, working with their writers, searching publishers for clients, and probably more than I can imagine! I went my full manuscript to the agent that wants to represent me on June 13th and I'm just waiting for her to reply about what she thinks of my manuscript. I'm quite nervous! It's the first time that an agent that wants to represent me wants to read my manuscript. *crosses fingers* I'm just waiting patiently until the time that she gets back to me. :)
I've read that it can take one, two or three months for an agent to read a full manuscript, depending on how busy they are and how many projects they are working on. Three months? That's a long time! Well, it took her a month to respond to me after reading my book proposal, first three chapters, and presenting it to a board meeting. I'm guessing it will take a month to two months. I'll just have to learn to distract myself in the meantime.
What I should be doing is editing.... I just can't get into it. I don't want to take apart "To Love Without Hope" and put it back together again. I don't know, but when it comes to editing... I'd rather not. I should probably stop procrastinating and do it. Gaaaaaah.
