If an editor asks me for pitches, saying she's desperate for ideas, and I deliver an email with like five of them... doesn't she at least owe me an acknowledgement?
If an editor gives me a great email with a list of stuff she'd like to see, and I give her 2 emailed in-depth pitches within a week... shouldn't she at least let me know if she's considering them?
Pitches are me, working for free. On spec. Plus, at the moment, money is dreadfully tight, and I want to line up some work. What does a gal have to do to get some positive affirmation?
I know I sound whiny. That's because I'm whining. Sigh.
