Second rejection letter. Very generic, only one sentence long. There’s a sort of mystery that lingers right before I click a new email from an agent open—Will it be a yes or a no? And then there’s that split-second when I fly over the words. It only took me about two seconds to read the body of the email, which was basically: “Thanks but no.”
Strike: Number Two. Like a pencil. There’s lots of kinds of pencils out there. Some are meant for writing, others for sketching, others for coloring. There’s one pencil out there that’s mine…it’s just a matter of finding that pencil and using it to sign a contract with a publisher.
Forgive me for such a poetical parallel…I’m listening to piano music. It kinda makes me thoughtful. 🙂
I’ve got eight more balls lined up. Maybe more. Hopefully I won’t strike out.
