How do you bite dust? I would think mixing it with liquid and drinking it would be easier, although not necessarily more pleasant.
In any case, agent #2 said no. Very politely and professionally, which makes me love her all the more.
I have a couple ways to look at this. One, I'm a horrible writer and I should just quit deluding myself and just do the things I'm proven successful doing. Two, I'm one step closer to getting published. Personally, I choose number two. Maybe I am deluding myself, but I'm having too much fun writing. I would be a much less positive person if I didn't have writing to turn to for stress relief.
