first rejection!

Yesterday I received my first rejection letter from a literary agent. Surprisingly, it didn’t bother me all that much. Of course it was a very kind form letter (actually an email), didn’t say anything like “you suck…don’t ever write anything again”, but it was a rejection nonetheless. It felt like a right of passage. For goodness sakes, who gets an acceptance on their first try in the publishing world? If you can name one, let me know!

I was a little triumphant because I’d moved on something big (at least I think it’s big). I’ve taken many steps, written the darn thing, wrote queries, etc… and that feels good.

Before I send out anymore queries I think I’ll get some beta readers. I need some more feedback on how to make this thing great. Any takers??? ;)
