Reading through old posts, I came across this gem. Thought I’d re post it. This is how enthusiastic I was when I first started querying this summer. My how things have changed!!! If I could only tell myself back then, that I would go through that thirteen more times.
Yes, there’s a first time for everything.
Just wish there would be a last time too. 😦
FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING!!! 6/14/2010
I got my first rejection email from an agent!!!!
I have passed through the Gate of Writers!
Perhaps I shouldn’t be this excited. But I’m not going to let it rain on my day. I hear that writers’ lives are fraught with rejections. This just means I’ve passed my first test. I can be rejected. And I can take it well! I imagine that will take me far on this uncertain path. NOW, the story might change if I get a few more rejection letters. I’ve sent four query letters, and one has come back negative. I’m planning on sending out a few more this week to boost my chances for success. Which are already good, I hope.
The word of the day: Daksinarrow.
