Staying positive

There’s a song that says, “The longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss.”  I hope that it holds true for publishing as well.

I received another rejection yesterday.  This time it really hurt, as the rejection came from someone who had requested my full manuscript.  I knew I shouldn’t get my hopes up and I did my best not to, but it still stung.  I understand that they can’t take on every project – it’s a small press, and it’s not the easiest of times out there.  You really have to love a project to take it on.

There was a bright spot in the midst of the gloom, though.
