Me before in 2008- Sees a manila envelope with familiar handwriting in mailbox and gets super excited. "Yes, they are interested!!"
Me before in 2008 - Has just read first rejection letter. Self esteem crumbles to floor. "What do I have to do to make it perfect- Grrr?"
(btw - The rejection letters are getting better - they now come with complements)
When you get a rejection letter back do you revise your ms right away, put it aside for awhile, keep sending it or do you trash it? What's your process?
Also, I entered into a picture contest over at Susanna Hill’s blog today, please come check it out. I need all the advice I can get for it. Thanks so much!!
