Facing Rejection

One of my partials came back today: rejected.

That makes three of my partials that have been rejected. I see a lot of people lament this sort of response, and I get it, it came be tough. Writing a manuscript is hard, finishing it is harder, sending it out and watching the rejections roll in is the hardest. But… during these times one needs to remember that this is the name of the game. Partials get rejected, queries get rejected, heck even full manuscript requests get rejected. You face it and you keep moving, because in the end that’s the only option you have.

(Unless of course you’re a quitter, and you’re not a quitter.)

Small Update

Not a lot to update this week, sorry for the silence. Quick run down:

  • I had one of my Coal Belly partials rejected. (Bound to happen. Not a big deal.)
  • I’ve had family in town and things have been busier at my day job. It’s a perfect storm and I haven’t had as much time in the evenings as I’d like. As a result progress on my Stars manuscript  has considerably slowed down.

I expect to shift next next week – in the meantime I’ll keep trudging along and leave you with a picture of the steamboat America loaded to the guards with cotton.
