The Fleeting Milestone High

After receiving another rejection email today, I feel a little down (the milestone high is wearing off). In an insanity filled second I wanted to scream, "What do you want from me?" Needless to say, my frustration grew. It's hard not to be frustrated when you hear (read) that the business is subjective for the umpteenth time. Do you know how I hate that word? How it has become the equivalent of nails-against-the-chalkboard for me. How many times I've seen that word in every type of sentence trying to let me down the easy way after the inital version of I'm not interested. I'm a big girl, I can take the rejection without padding, or the implication that someone else might be interested. I obviously know that, which is why I researched and queried more than one agent.

Rant over. I feel better now.

  1. Okay take a deep breath...feel better now? Ok good, now go get some chocolate...back yet? Okay now file away that rejection and forget about it...maybe take another look at your query letter or try again somewhere else. Eventually someone will be smart enough to like your work. After all I just saw the link to your blog on AW and thought i'd check it out, I like the thought put into your blog and the passion you have for your writing...Someone will see that soon enough :)*hugs*
