- Half way through and is "enjoying it," so doesn't want to be counted out. Apology for lameness of taking 6 months. (Wonder if halfway means no compelling reason to finish?)
- "Wha? Huh? You never sent it to me. I want it. Send it now. I'll read right away." (Of course, I had sent it at the beginning of September, but who am I to argue?)
- Radio silence
Also, re: the agent who liked my writing, but wasn't really into my novel topic, and wanted to see my other work, thinking that I might not oppose piece-meal representation, I sent some samples off. Immediately got a cheery email with apology that holidays were busy, but the New Year would be the perfect time to read my materials.
So, that's three for four.
