and it happens again

Sometimes I think the ups and downs of this whole experience is gonna drive me nuts.  Two days ago I got a request for my first five pages.  My manuscript is almost 400 pages.  I told my email quite calmly how are you gonna be able to tell anything by the first five pages.  But instead of throwing a fit, I sent my pages happily.  Today I got a very nice email saying sorry but your pages didn't draw me in as much as I would have liked.  This time I told my email not so nicely exactly what I was thinking.  Gotta say each email does bring a pit to my stomach but then again these are the breaks.  Thanks for letting me vent time I promise to have a happier least she didn't ask for my whole manuscript and then reject me ;)
