I've been rejected. I feel a country song coming on. I've been cheated, been mistreated, when will I find - a publisher. Not only that - I tried to answer the lovely postings from Kerry, Watery Tart, Galen and Elizabeth and it told me 3 times that it posted but it didn't. Whyyyyyyyy???
I wrote on Galen's blog today, that I didn't fret anymore with rejections because I considered it a necessary step on the way to being published but apparently I was lying. I haven't quite reached that Zen state of non-attachment to my manuscript. I'm plenty attached. But I will do what I said I'd do for every rejection - I will send it out again. I will take the positive words the publisher gave me for strength and the critical ones for a polish and send it out. Because that's what we writers do. We mail things endlessly. Besides the writing that is. Ah phoooooey.
