Pitching is you tossing an idea out to an editor or agent and hoping they like it enough to take a swing. But what happens when they do take a swing and ask for more?
You sit down and run through the amount they requested one more time to make sure it's polished to a gleaming shine. You send the requested amount and then spit polish the remainder in hopes they ask for the full.
But you wait months and you hear nothing. Do you send an e-mail and give them a nudge? What happens when they asked you to send a partial and told you to give them a nudge after a certain length of time if you havne't heard anything, and they still don't respond?
How long do you wait?
If I haven't heard from an unsolicited query in six months, I write it off as a not interested, but how long do you wait to hear back from something you pitched at a conference and was requested? And how many times do you send a "nudge"?
