I shudder to give my submission stats for October and November, but I have always been brutally honest on my blog. So here goes:
Oct/November Submission Stats:
Still in Que: 8
I’m actually a bit down about writing lately. I’ve had a lot more rejections than normal, even for me. I also received a book rejection for my picture book. I had to send a query letter, and I received this response: Sorry your submissions was rejected. Please respond if you get this since our emails are not getting to you.
Good luck with your writing.
First of all, the grammatical error really ticked me off. Secondly, it irks me that I had to reply to a rejection. Plus, there was no reason given, as usual. So, I guess I’m discouraged. How can I have over 50 publications of short stories and still have no book published? Any words of advice, anyone? I know, I know. Get an agent. Whatever. I still have no idea how to pick an agent. Looking at lists of agents totally overwhelms me. This could be one of the most important decisions of my life, and I’m supposed to say, “eenie, meenie, minie, moe” or what?
So, I refrain from thought for the day, today. I have no thoughts. Maybe I’ll feel better tomorrow. The sun will come up tomorrow, right? Until then, I’m having a pity party. If you have been rejected recently, you’re invited.
