I am so happy to be here.
« on: March 23, 2009, 08:56:58 PM »
I did a search for the agent who requested my full manuscript and found QT.  Then I found the forum and I'm already learning so much I could jump for joy...if I weren't old and lazy.  Anyway, I've been writing for about 12 years, have several screenplays under my belt and one novel manuscript. I haven't been good about keeping stats but I've probably sent out about 30 email queries, had a couple of partials and one full.  The one full came after the partial so I'm hoping that's a good sign.
