or is it DIRECTION?
Last week I received the world's most brilliant rejection. It was just what I'd been praying for--well, in a round about way. No one really wants to be rejected. Anyway, it was kindly worded, uplifting, and gave me a quick market update that confirmed I chose the right direction to take my writing. It was also complimentary, and did I mention encouraging? The respect I already had for this agent multiplied tenfold.
Why can't all rejections be so wonderful?
Sometimes it feels like ages ago I started writing, and like it'll be ages before something "happens." In the meantime, a letter like the one I got last week helps. A lot.
What encourages you to keep truckin' until you get (or got) THE CALL?
