I was so excited this morning — I got a request for a partial from 3 Seas Literary agency through the Musetracks Agent Shop. Wow, I am so pleased.
So I asked for the afternoon off at work, came home and polished up my query, cut and pasted, prayed a little and hit send. As soon as I hit the button, I thought “I didn’t paste the synopsis! Just the query and the first 3 chapters! OMG!!!!”
So I hit an immediate resend, with the synopsis in there this time, but I figure I am screwed. They can always find a reason not to want you, and being a pinbrained screwup is more than enough.
Crap. So much for the big break. Well, at least now I won’t be sitting waiting for my big fat contract.
Illusions of grandeur? I’d settle for illusions of adequacy!
