Time off

I’ll be dropping off the face for a little while. The rejections are piling up and I have to admit they’re getting to me more than I’d like. While I work on a new (better, stronger, faster) query letter that will make the agents fall to my feet in supplication, I will be incommunicado.

To all the striking writers out there, hang tough. Everyone else, try not to write your best posts until I get back.

    Steve — I’d very much like that.Charles — Man, if the posts you put up aren’t your best, I’m a little scared of you.Sqt and Kate — Thanks. My brain tells me the same things you guys are. It’s just my ego’s been driving the bus for the past couple of weeks. I’m trying to get a handle on that.Mmm, chicken.

    Aw {{hugs}}.If it helps, Madeleine L’Engle’s “A Wrinkle in Time” was rejected 101 times before it sold, and Louis Lamour received 349 rejections. (I think Harry Potter received 12 rejections)Hey, even Colonel Sanders’ chicken recipe was rejected over 1000 times before he got someone to sponsor him. :)Hang in there.

    I’m pretty sure J.K. Rowling got a bazillion rejection letters too. It seems to be part of the process. A crappy part.

    I don’t write my best posts as a matter of course. I just keep ’em in my head. Hang in there. See you soon.

    Maybe I’ll do a post or two on query letters and the agent process…
