Must resist temptation to email the agent to whom I sent Valley of the Dead...

Will... fading...

Insecurity... rising...

One should always keep one's queries to a minimum, or one looks like a needy, high-maintenance pest - an especially bad impression to leave someone with when they're trying to decide if they want to work with you long term.

Tenterhooks. I know. Augh! The waiting. The "I don't want to be a pest ... BUT!" anxiety. Hang in there, Doc!

Oh, and hey, pop over to my LJ if you want to see how I scored on the Dante test ... I'm pretty hellbound all right!

Perhaps I could say that my email's been acting up and I was just concerned that perhaps I'd missed an email?

That seems to be the "default" excuse nowadays. Of course, it's all so transparent...
