Just Off The Presses!!

Hello, All! Thought I would quickly share with you that I have already received a reply from one of the literary agents to whom I submitted a query. Rejected.

A few of my initial thoughts when I read that e-mail a little over an hour ago:

  1. Okay, I got my first rejection! Congratulations to me! There will be other opportunities.
  2. Okay, I got my first rejection. What if I really do suck at writing? You’re being a bit too hard on yourself. Tone down the negativity.
  3. But, I can’t. I’m fairly good at two things: writing and mathematics. What if my writing career doesn’t amount to snot? How am I going to live the style of life I want to live (i.e. not in a mission for the remainder of my time)? How? How? How???
  4. Okay, I got my first rejection! Congratulations to me! There will be other opportunities.

As of 3:35 PM CDT on May 20, 2011, that’s my world. I hope yours is equally as wonderful.  😉

Take care and best wishes…

    Virtually every published writer has had dozens if not hundreds of rejections. Consider yourself initiated into good company : >)
