It could be both.

Or neither.

That’s because they think their sh!t doesn’t stink. Period. The end. Unfortunately. all I can say is “get used to it.” And for anyone who doesn’t agree, look at this way: It takes mere seconds to craft a courteous response.

I played golf about a month ago with a well known Manager. I think he co-owns his own company. I'm not friends with him, he was a friend of a friend. This was a Sunday morning at 8:30am and he was on the phone immediately. He got so sidetracked that he forgot his phone in between holes and had to go back and get it. On top of that I think he and his wife just had a baby. I'm not making excuses for people who can't return an e mail (because it's currently happening to me), and I don't agree with it, but I saw first hand where these people's priorities are and it's not with those people who cold query producers, managers, etc.

I don't take any offense to silence regarding a cold query, or even being ghosted by someone that I was working with. Just makes me a little sad sometimes. Plenty of reps out there and all I can do is just keep pumping out content with the hope that eventually I'll land one!

Didn't want to start a whole new thread... but here is what one literary manager says he does when they do respond and take interest in your work...
