Rites of passage…

I think getting my very first rejection letter counts as a rite of passage. I feel official now. Although I love the fact that we can email queries and such these days and don’t have to deal with snail mail. It is a bit of a bummer just having an email response, I mean, how am I supposed to frame my beautiful first rejection letter? I kid…I’m not going to frame it. Although…I am kind of tempted to print it out. But I think just putting it in a special rejections folder in my email will probably work best. I don’t really want to have visible proof of my future rejections. LOL It will be ok if I get tons of rejections…I only need one yes. 😉

The only disappointment is that it was a simple form rejection. It was awfully nice though. The part that stood out to me was this, ” the query didn’t appeal to me quite enough to inspire me to offer further consideration for your project”.

BALLS! Ok, this gives me good info for my next queries. Number one is that my query DID NOT do it’s job. That is ok, I won’t be too hard on it, it’s just a first query and it will get better. So, first things first, re-do the query so it will appeal to someone enough.
