I Just Queried ...

... Paige Wheeler at Folio Lit - who was the very first agent I ever pitched in person, and the first to request a partial from me.  I still remember her thoughtful, detailed, and extremely generous rejection (which was so correctly done - the MSS at that point was the typical work of a first-timer imagining she was "complete" ...).  She was far too kind and said my writing, the character, the plot, the setting were good - but she wasn't passionate about the work.  I realized I was still learning what passion meant, myself, as I discovered EDITING.
