Friday Scorecard

by Richard Perkins

Submission StatsI’m back from the holidays, and ready to face a new year. I sent out a couple more queries this week to some new agents.

I also started separating out “No Reply” from the other rejection types in my statistics. In this age of electronic submissions no reply usually means no interest, but I wanted to see just how prevalent the trend was. It’s pretty widespread as you can see. For reference, 7 of the 10 actual rejections were form letters, while the other 3 cited some level of custom response.

In other news, I have 3 new job applications and 4 other open leads that I’m following up. I think that qualifies as cautiously optimistic for the start of 2010.
