Dear Miss Snark:
As a faithful and (hopefully!) not-nitwitty reader of your blog, I abide by, nay, cherish your advice. First and foremost: Follow the Damn Directions.
So: today I received from Agent, in my own SASE no less, the following directions (and I quote verbatim): "Please feel free to pass along a larger chunk of your manuscript, [name]."
I initially sent (as per directions!) a query and 3 chapters.
How much more is "a larger chunk"? Not the rest, or Agent would have said so, right? So, 4 more chapters? 6 more? I was tempted to send the rest but knew I should consult you first. I only seek clarity.
After all my yapping about following the directions this just takes the cake for unclear directions.
Send half the novel. That's just a random number but since she didn't ask for a full, or "all", your guess is as good as mine.
