Back to My Life

Now I’m back in the city and back to my everyday life.  Back to wedding planning, buying furniture for my new home, and inevitably hearing back from some of my queries.

When the reply popped up in my mailbox this morning, the butterflies returned, a slight grin appeared on my face, and once again I anticipated what could be waiting for me.   I clicked on the email and tried to keep the butterflies at bay as I read, “Thanks for this query but we are not adding to our overcrowded client list at this time.  Good luck with your project in the publishing world.”

All right, another no.  I can handle it, it’s just part of the game.  Now it’s back to waiting, waiting for more replies and actively seeking out the right agent.  I know the right one’s out there.  I just need to find him/her.  I’ve managed to find the right man, now I just need to find the right agent.  Let’s just hope that this one doesn’t take 20 years.

Another Two Makes Three

I received two more polite rejections today.  These were the generic type, both beginning with “Dear Author” and ending with some friendly good luck in the future comment.

While I have no idea why either agency rejected me, somehow it hurts less today.  Somehow I feel less brushed aside, but more like this is just part of the rollercoaster of being an author (published or otherwise).

This was the ride I chose, the ride I always wanted – so I’m going to hold on tight, yell a little if I need to, and jump for joy when someone finally says Yes.   Like one of my rejection letters said, “It just takes one ‘Yes!’”
