Let's do this! and/or Bring it on!
I finally screwed up my courage, and sent my book to six different literary agencies today.
The first agency submission was, predictably, terrifying. I filled out the online form, and must have sat there for about five minutes, just staring at the "submit" button. I finally took a deep breath, put my hand on Daisy's head, and clicked the button.
After that one, it was easy to do the rest. The response time for each agency varies from three weeks to eight weeks, and most say that if you don't hear back from them in three months, they aren't interested. I was sure to write down the date on my notes, but I don't think I'll forget this day anytime soon. The day Kimmie finally had the courage to click "submit."
Of course, I'm not naive enough to really think that I'll get any interest in my first round of submissions. But it would be a nice thing, right? And also, having done this now, I feel like I can work on a couple of my other ideas. Submitting is easy, writing is hard.
