Waiting to Hear

Years ago, when submitting work to agents, publishers, etc., I recognized a consistent pattern in my assumptions about what these people were thinking.

If you haven’t heard in one week, they haven’t read it.

If you haven’t heard in two weeks, they don’t like it.

If you haven’t heard in three weeks, they don’t like you.
