This will just be a short note, I promise! I just wanted to share with all of you that I received a Query response from a literary agency I submitted to 231 days ago. Apparently I was caught in their spam filter even though I had "Query Letter" in the subject line and had followed all the submission guidelines.
Unfortunate for me it was a polite rejection, but at the same time, who wants to work with an agency that takes that long to respond to a simple letter. Yes I know they are super busy and loaded down with billions of queries. But lets face it, after 200 odd days, I kind of assumed it was a rejection.
Like going on a date and them telling you they will call you tomorrow and then you run into them six months later and their all like "Hey! So good to see you, but no, I'm totally not interested in a relationship." Surprise, surprise.
