View Full Version : Such a thing as too many fulls?

When you reach a certain number of full requests, do you stop querying?

I know this is personal taste and there are different theories...I'm just wondering:

1) if an offering agent would ever be turned off by a writer who has too many outstanding fulls?

2) what's your personal comfort level with outstanding partials/fulls?

There seems to be a balance between holding off and waiting for feedback and continuing to query 'cause you're on a roll...

1) No.

2) Six fulls outstanding.

Unless the agent ask how many full you have out, they are not going to know.

Most writers are lucky to get one full request for every ten queries they submit. As far as I am concerned you can never have too many request for full reads. Just make sure you are keeping track of all submission out, closed, additional request, etc.
