Query Status ~ Week 6

Some of the agencies I queried indicated that a response could take up to eight weeks. This obviously wasn’t one of them. No more manuscript requests. No more rejections. No word at all, which I’m actually okay with. As it turned out, I went in for quintuple bypass open heart surgery on Friday. I doubt my medical condition was directly related to my queries, but I still feel as if I’ve been run over by a radioactive triceratops, and it’s still a struggle to do much beyond peeing on my own. Revising a manuscript can be quite a chore. So is composing this post, so I’ll stop shortly.

But for those keeping score, 44% of my queries were rejected within the first few weeks, sometimes within hours of sending them. 2% got favorable replies, and another 54% are still carrying their full potential, not unlike the promise of unchecked Lotto tickets. For now, all I can do is wait. That, at least, I can manage.
