Who would have ever thought you could be so excited to receive criticism? Constructive criticism that is! It has been 2 painful months of waiting for feedback from an agency that specifically is going to critique my Query Letter, Synopsis, and the first three chapters of my novel!! (I am screaming; can you hear it?)
Through Writers Digest I attended a webinar, specifically, “How to Avoid Rookie Mistakes When Submitting to Agents.” The course was $89.99 and offered these 3 all critical feedbacks. I have, of course, in that painfully long amount of time, re-written most of it. But to see if the changes I have made are in the right direction is kil – ling me!
I have seen similar webinars and professional feed-backs that are much more expensive, and this was an offer too good to pass up. I also admire the agency who offered the course. The information stated our material would be sent back by 3-29-15, but that was yesterday, a Sunday, so I am giving them until Monday, today, as the actual end date. We all make mistakes, right?
One would fret, “Did they receive my material at all?” Well, I know that they did because I got an e-mail, dutifully archived, from the agent replying my submission was received. From this past Friday until the end of business today: (8 p.m.?) I have been jumping back and forth from multiple e-mails to see if this gem of disappointment has finally arrived.
If by the end of the week I still have not received my packet should I call them? The last thing I need to do is make a bigger fool of myself than I already have a tendency to do. Face to the sun I am smiling bright, big-red-felt marker bring it on!
Keep writing, ❤ Jessica
