I"m sure there's a dead writer who just got a rejection letter today in the mail.

The producers who advertise in the InkTip Preferred newsletter are notorious for late responses. I've had some get back to me regarding a script request from over two years ago. I usually draw a blank on the name, and have to scroll back through years of query confirmations to find the contact.

I just got a request to send in material exactly 6 months to the day I queried...sometimes e-mails really do fall through the cracks.

Well, I just got a different type of record...

6 years ago a producer requested a script off of a query I had sent him. at the time, he liked the script but he felt that the budget would be too high to produce the script, so he passed. I said thanks and moved on.

Time passes... 6 years to be exact... and I receive an email from him yesterday asking if the script is still available (it is) and if so, could I send him the synopsis.

We'll see what comes out of this, but it just struck me that 6 years has flown by really quickly.

Side note: Interesting that I keep our correspondence from 6 years ago and he didn't. He should have already had the opposes and script I sent him 6 years ago. Maybe just purged my submission have he passed on my script.

I think the longest ive waited for a final rejection was about 9 1/2 months...

Got a request by phone from Brad Pitt's Plan B Entertainment, like within an hour of the initial email query. Sent them the script that day, didnt get the final no for 9 1/2 months.

So if you write something based on 'current' events, it might turn out to be a historical period piece.
