I recently received an e-mail back from my lone "Full" request, and I need some advice. Here is the response:
I recently finished reading Morrigan. As you can imagine we receive a lot of material to read and I normally only read enough of a manuscript to decide if I think it would be of interest to us. I read all of Morrigan because I found it to be very interesting. Your dialogue was well written and very believable, however, I found the ending disappointing and was waiting for something more to happen. If you would be willing to rework the end of the story, I would be happy to take another look in the future.I think you are a talented writer and I hope you continue to write. I wish you all the best.
I'm interpreting this as giving me the opportunity to rework the ending and resubmit within a few weeks or months with a revision, which obviously I plan on doing. However, I want to solicit some more feedback from him regarding HOW he'd like to see the ending changed. Does that seem amateurish? I don't want to come across as asking him to tell me what to write, but it would be enormously helpful to have more insights than this. For example, what does he consider the ending? The last page? The last thirty pages? Without coming off as annoying, how should I respond to this???
