Whether you sign a contract with your agent or if it's a verbal handshake agreement, your agent should still be an agent - help you market your script, get you meetings, handle negotiations and money issues, etc. Your situation as I understand it is just weird. It leads me to ask these questions- 1 Have any of your works sold? If your agent has been willing to look at your works for five years, your writing is probably good.

If you believe that you have five year's worth of scripts that she hasn't sold, perhaps you would be better off finding someone else.

The next two she read and gave me various reasons why they couldn't give me a contract on them although she said she liked them.
Now she has my latest, which I think is by far my strongest work to date.
I am now doing this full time and I really want to make it work. She's really nice and we get along great - she works at a smaller agency Don Buchwald. But she's not quick about reading and responding to my scripts or returning my calls. And as far as I can tell, when I'm hip pocketed - I do all the work and she just sends out a script or makes a phone call when I ask her to. I guess the bottom line is that I'm confused as to what my relationship is with her. I don't know if I'm a client or not.

So, I am not using this for its intended purpose.
Instead I use it to wrap a heating pad around my leg when I have muscle spasms and it keeps the heating pad in place. It's a little bit too long for that but I merely tie an overhand knot in it and that shortens it up just fine.
