After a twelve-year hiatus from writing, a year and a half polishing a new mms, and six months of stalled-out query experiments, I have a request for a
partial. From a really great agent I'd marked off as a non-responder. I was almost terrified to send it today, but off it went. To keep from nail-biting, I'm
working on another mms.

Thanks, folks. I'm trying not to daydream too much at this point, since I know the cold hard probabilities. I'm still tweaking query letters, gathering names of other agents who might look at my big fat fantasy epic, and working on the second mms.

Oddly enough, what really helped calm me down yesterday was looking through the series synopsis the agent asked me to send, too. I have three books written already out of a projected six, and two of those will need some revision, but I'm not starting with a blank screen. And I think the story arc is pretty good. I'm no Rothfuss or Sanderson, but I could make these books work.

We'll see what Interested Agent has to say in a month or so.

Good luck with it! I know from experience how hard it is to keep from angsting about it, so starting a new ms is probably a good plan :)

I'm finding that difficult too! Trying to keep my feet to the ground.

PinkAmy -- may your partial lead to a full, and your full to a really great agent!
