Reeeejected

And I'm as happy as Larry (Question: Why is Larry supposed to be such a jovial chap? Anyone out there know?). I'm one step closer to getting published, which is great. Now, naturally I'd have been a lot happier if I'd been asked for a partial, but to be perfectly honest I didn't expect anything else. The point is it was a nice, personalized rejection. Now I have to continue to work on the query letter and keep sending it out.

Everybody has to start someone, huh? It only takes one partial request to really get the ball rolling or so I've heard.

Okay, my last comment should have read "Everybody has to start SOMEWHERE." Geez, even my fingers have forgotten how to this. ;)

Sweet! I'm proud of you. One day I'll be in your shoes. You're my example, so keep it up!

I've never felt so much like a writer as when I was getting rejection slips. I keep a file for each of my stories and a file any awards or rejections each of them earn in with all the rough drafts and edit copies. I need to get back to it.
