I recently attended a writing conference.
There were a lot of people who talked to me about their projects. I pretty much agreed to read my usual-a query and some pages- from everyone who met me.
Three weeks later; I've received ten, TEN emails from one woman who attended.
The first two I saved in my "incoming work" file where I keep all the email that pertains to work I'm considering before I take on a client. I answered those with the basic "got it, thanks".
The next three I moved to the trash, unread.
Then I got annoyed.
I haven't read any of her work yet.
Not a single page.
She's getting a very nice rejection letter. It's all a big lie. I simply do not want to work with her and I don't care if she is the next Pynchon.
3. mistake prone (I think some of the emails were revisions of earlier ones)
is less than zero on the desirability scale.
