Dilemma #1

I just got a job and have been there for two weeks and today I get a phone call for a better position with better pay elsewhere. It's even a promotion!

Sigh..what to do? What to do?

Dilemma #2

Got three agent request which should be outstanding...but when I sent out the queries I was expecting a long turnaround. I'm in the midst of a killer re-write to get this thing totally polished..and it looks like it'll be like 3 weeks before I'll be done..now, would these folks be annoyed if I don't send it out right away from their request or they won't remember?

I'm sure they keep a log, but I want to get it right and land a killer agent.

Sigh..the pressures of trying to have a real career! :)

Take the better job.

Agents want it right, not fast.

Don't you wish you had a magic ball that shows what every place that offers you a job is like??!! I just have to say go with your gut.

If it is going to be longer than a few weeks, give the agent(s) a head's up and tell them you're still polishing. Otherwise, (not to be rude or disrespectful) they have a lot going on, too. Everybody is busy. And honestly - awesome work is worth waiting for. They know it. You know it. Don't worry so much!

I agree. Take the better job.

And I know what you mean about not knowing how to time the query versus request. Definitely get it right, but I would let them know that it will take a little bit of time to polish. Just give them a heads up.
