Ms. Wekstein often states that she responds to ALL queries. The longer you wait, the most interested she is in your work. She posted on Twitter the other day that she just made an offer of rep for a manuscript that had been in her maybe pile for a year.

From responses, it seems she hardly gives a reply, or places every query in her maybe pile? I want to query her but most agents I’ve been querying respond in one to two weeks. It means now that I’m not sure I would like to get a rejection in months after forgetting I even queried a particular agent. Since her response method is very unclear, I think I’ll wait a while until I have no more options (hopefully it won’t be the case!)

I nudged a few weeks ago and she responded very kindly. She did inform me, however, that being in her "maybe" pile means that she liked your query, but hasn't yet read your pages. Knowing that was a bit more grounding to me.

I queried 8/3 and haven't heard back yet. Is anyone else who queried around this time still waiting for a response? I'm trying to make an educated guess as to whether I could have landed in a Maybe pile (!!) or if my query is just still chilling in the queue and hasn't been checked out yet :)
I'm not planning to nudge yet, because to be honest, I would like to prolong the tiny glimmer of hope that I'm a maybe
