She's had my full ms over 6 months and didn't respond to a nudge. I'm closing this one out. :/

Update: I'd closed this out after 2 months, until she sent a request yesterday, apologizing for the delay.

EQ 6/24/16
FR 8/9/16
At the time she requested, I was working on an R&R and she agreed to wait for the revised version.
Revision sent 2/22/17
Another revision sent after a new R&R 1/14/18
She replied on 1/16/18 with a very kind/apologetic response saying she'll have an answer for me by the end of the month. I feel bad when agents feel bad about long response times, especially newer agents who much have SO much on their plate besides reading slush. But I do think this might point to her planning on getting through all the full requests eventually :)
Kind personalized rejection 1/26. Good luck everyone!

I think I may CNR this :/ bummer because she was a dream agent but it's almost 9 months since she's had my revised full and crickets to any nudge sent unfortunately. I wish everyone better luck!

@scg728 She seems super nice so I'm sure she won't hold the nudges against you :) good luck!

@mirandaf thank you so much for replying! That's great advice and so helpful to know kind of where she might be at in terms of other manuscripts. No one's posted on here in a while so I had no idea haha. She seems lovely though, it's great to even have a chance to work with her so I hope I haven't come off as annoying.

@scg728 I wouldn't worry! You know she has your ms, which is great. In my experience when a responsive agent (e.g. One who confirms receipt in a timely manner) doesn't respond to nudges it's because she's trying to get to the ms soon. I'd give it at least another two months before nudging again if it were me. I've had my ms with her since 2/21 and haven't heard back yet either if that helps. She's probably just swamped :-)

EQ 8/30
FR 11/2
Sent a revised version 1/17
She mentioned she hoped to get back to me within 2-3 months, so I nudged at the 3 month mark (April 17) and again on May 15, but haven't heard back on either. I don't want to pester her, but she was very responsive regarding my request to send a revised version and confirming the receipt of it. Silence makes me nervous, but I suppose it's better than bad news?
