I still have over twenty query letters out there, and wonder what I should be doing now. I'm still waiting to hear from the one agent who has a partial submission. Querying agents is not for the impatient or the faint of heart.
I've never taken rejection well, but this process is surprising me. For once in my life, I'm not taking the rejections personally. It's not me they don't like, and not necessarily my novel. It's just that my novel doesn't ignite a fire in the agent, and that's OK.
That being said, should I query some more? Which query do I use? Do I use my original query, or the new-fangled query tracker one? I think I'll wait a couple of days, then send out a few more. Then I'll wait some more. Hey, I'm getting good at it.
