Just thinking…


As I work on a synopsis for one of my manuscripts, I can’t help but think about a rejection email I received a couple of weeks ago for another story. Of course when a writer submits a query, synopsis, or the first few chapters of a manuscript there is always a chance for rejection.

And yes, a rejection letter is often disappointing, but not the end of the world. Besides, how often do new writers get an opportunity to submit directly to an editor – an editor who normally only works directly with agents?

Yep, the more I think about it, I’m proud of myself (despite the outcome). I’m glad I submitted because it could’ve gone either way- I could’ve received that three book deal I’m waiting for. 🙂 I’m definitely pleased that the editor who rejected my manuscript had some nice things to say, but unfortunately she didn’t “fall head over heels in love” with the story. But no worries, I’m encouraged by her positive comments, and I’m confident in knowing – I will achieve publication success … soon!
