Form reject after a day, but it was kind. Good to get quick feedback, I feel like I'm in everybody's "maybe" pile, hearing nothing.

A bit of a funny story. On 3/26, I queried her and mistakenly inserted the wrong name in the query salutation. Within ten minutes, she informed me that this person did not work at her agency. I begged her forgiveness citing the late hour in Shanghai. Apparently, she is quite forgiving as within 24 hours she asked for my full with the following message:

"Sure, send pdf. I am very slow, the worst.
Please be patient & continue approaching other agents."

I feel like a guy who asks his crush on a date but calls her by the wrong name. After apologizing, she agrees to go on the date, but informs him to still date other girls as well... ;-)

Given 1 day agent time roughly equals 3 months of author time, I'm thinking I may need to wait a year or two for her response to the full. But then again, she has been quite rapid-fire so far, so here's to hoping the wait is a bit shorter. ;-)

I sent her a note asking whether she wished to see my revised MS after it had undergone a couple of R&Rs. She replied back that she read my query and felt my MS would not be what she seeks. So I'm a bit befuddled why she requested the pdf of the MS in the first place. Oh well...onwards!

Really impressive response time, though she did stress it will be awhile before she reads it.

I'm trying to use this quarantine time to query, and the rejections are flowing in. Part of the process, I guess, but not the good part.

I hope everyone out there is staying safe and strong.
