Okay, so I did a kind of dumb thing (in hindsight.)
I pitched an old YA manuscript I wrote on #PitMad, and two agents asked for the full manuscript.
Because the manuscript is so old (I wrote it seven years ago), I was having major problems actually finding the damn thing to send to the agents.
I have gone through 3 laptops in 7 years, and because of this I only have about 80% of the book. The other 20% has just disappeared. I have no idea where that document is that holds the entire book.
I figured I have 3 options, and they all suck.
1) Don't send anything at all to the agent, and chalk it all up to a shi### learning experience.
2) Admit the truth to the agents: I have 80% of the full. Dunno where the rest is. Let me find it.
3) Just send off the 80% and say nothing.
The reason I was kind of thinking this was because agents usually stop reading when they're bored of the manuscript anyway. So in all likelihood, she probably won't even notice, because she wont even read the 80% I give her.
I suck so much, and I can't believe this happened. Can anyone give me some advice, because I have no idea what to do. It's already been 2 weeks since they requested the full.
