OK People, Tell the Truth.
Between rewrites and multi querying, how often do you really check your emails for agent responses?:TheWave::PartySmil
I'll start with my number: About five times an hour, minimum.
How about you?

I used to check at least once a day, sometimes even more.

My phone is synced with my Gmail address (gotta love Android), so I would receive an alert every time an email arrived.

Hardly ever anymore.

I'm some kind of weirdo, I suspect: once a day, maybe twice. No more.

I try to get out of the house, or at least away from the computer, as much as possible and focus on something else. But when I am online...a lot.

I have something like a dozen short story subs out as well as edits and other things, but although I check my email pretty much every time my phone dings (it's completely Pavlovian), I am not looking for editor responses or expecting them. They're always a delightful surprise. :)

Wow, thank you everyone for your honesty! Does it look to you as if these numbers average at least a few times per hour?
I'm still checking at least five times an hour!

My e.mail is linked to my iPhone, so when it buzzes I check it out.

Check email? What does this mean?

My email is ALWAYS on...on my android. It dings when an email comes in. So I ALWAYS know. I never specifically 'check' my email.

Not for responses, but right now, since I'm running a web comic, I literally keep a Chrome window open with Google's live statistics analytics, just to grin when someone comes to the site, since I can see it happening instantly.
