Marking this CNR and moving on to another agent.

After 6 weeks with no response I sent my query again on October 6. This will be the second round of 6 weeks with no response. Erin says if there is no response after submitting again after 6 weeks to then feel free to query another agent at Gallt.

I queried Ms. Westin on April 5. As of today (7/14), I haven't heard back from her. Should I give up on her (cnr this)? Her site doesn't say if she's a "no response means no" agent.

Update: It's now been 121 days with no response (and it looks like QT is about to close it out, whether I want to or not). As she opens again on the first, I'm not marking it CNR yet.

Update #2: it's now been 162, days, so I took your advice (and your template, @WritingGnitirW) and sent Ms. Westin a nudge. *fingers crossed*

Update #3: 207 days since QM query sent. Still awaiting an answer.
FR: 11/17 = 226 days since first EQ.
