So let's just say an agent had your full manuscript. Hypothetically speaking, of course. Said agent sent an e-mail saying the manuscript would be read ASAP on Friday. Did the agent:
A. Read the manuscript over the weekend, hate it, and decide to send a rejection via snail mail which will most likely find it's way to your mailbox by Wednesday and crush your dreams of working with said agent.
B. Read the manuscript over the weekend, hate it and hasn't had time to send the rejection e-mail yet.
C. Spend the weekend at the spa instead of reading your manuscript.
D. Love the manuscript, but wants to get some second opinions before going any further.
E. Like the manuscript, but can't decide if he/she should take a gamble on two completely unknown authors in a down economy and is waiting for a sign from God.
