Slow Going

O snail,
Climb Mount Fuji
But slowly, slowly!
               -Issa (translated by R.H. Blyth)

The agent who has 50 pages of my manuscript (or who has recycled 50 pages of my manuscript) is not going to be in touch.  The “don’t call us, we’ll call you” window of time has elapsed, as of today, and I am obliged to assume that “the material submitted is not right for our agency at this time.”

The good news is that I’m free to query again, and I’m doing that as soon as I’m done with this post.  The draft has been saved in my e-mail for two weeks.  I’m ready.

O snail.
