Let the rejections begin
Ok, the rejections are finally starting to flow in, the first of my writing career. Note to self: don't take it personally. This will be a journey, one with bumps and hard curves. It may take years of writing more manuscripts, and many more rejection letters. The lump in my throat is probably acid reflux, and not hurt feelings.
So, I'll stiffen my upper lip, poke out my chest, and resist the urge to give up. Only after I do a couple, two or three, sets of extra heavy deadlifts. That always helps.
**Edit to original post**
A follow up email lifted my spirits: "...I'm happy to work with you on revisions...I really would like to work with you..."
