So, after quite an editorial struggle, I got an essay published in a main-stream publication that's read by a lot of people. The piece was about being a writer in large part. So, being fast on my feet, I sent a link to the agents who still have (zzzzzzzzzz) my novel from way back into the year 2009 and are professing to be reading it as quickly as possible. Do you think when you do something like that you are being annoying and cheesy, or do you think it helps? I am of two minds, but hope for the latter. Any opinions on it? Do you do things like that when an agent or editor is reading your work, or do you sit quietly like you're supposed to, patient as a nun?
