So unemployed, STILL sick and enjoying my family, I haven't really worked a lot on my novel lately. The first is still finished, with revisions complete (again).

So anyway, I was pleasantly surprised to find a request for a partial in my inbox!

YES!

I'm going to stay realistic and expect a rejection, but still . . . YES!

That's the way. If you expect a rejection, you can't be disappointed and an acceptance would feel even better.

Accept good news wherever you can get it! That's great and I hope it translates into a full request and then an offer of representation. All the best!!

Way to go! It gives hope at least. Best of luck and I'll pray they ask for a full, then say "We want this and I want to be your agent."

Scott! I'm surprised at you. Don't expect to get rejected. If you expect rejection it means you lack confidence in your work.

Your work is good. Expect acceptance, my friend.

Oh I'm confident in the work, but I'm also confident in agents passing.
I guess it's hard to balance optimism and realism.

Sure sounds like someone who needed, and deserved, a major spiritual boost. Here's to more requests and acceptances coming your way.

Yeah! A Wonder Woman avatar. I like her alright, but I'm more a fan of the X-Man, Storm.

...Sadly, I didn't see an avatar for Mighty Mouse, so I went with Wonder Woman :D
