I haven't been around in a while, I've been waiting for my queries to come back and writing. I got one response from an agent who requested a partial from me. She wrote a lengthy email, all of it with praise. Here's a portion: "You have a great imagination - I love the premise - and you're a good writer, but I'm sad to say that I just wasn't passionate enough about this to ask to see more. I wish I could offer constructive suggestions, but I thought the dialogue was fine, the characters well-crafted, and the plot well-conceived. I think it's the kind of thing that really is subjective - why some people adore the book on the top of the NYTimes bestseller list, and others don't." What do I take from this? Should I assume my work is kinda boring? I've gotten this same response "I'm just not passionate enough about it" from a lot of agents. Anyway, that's what going on with me, and I wanted to see what you guys thought.
