Okay, I have been initiated: I got my first rejection letter today from an agent. If I really want to be pessimistic, I could say it’s the first of many. However, I still have hope.
It only takes one “yes.” Many years ago I sent out a query – my first ever – for an article I’d written, to about a dozen magazines. I got a lot of rejections, but then one phone call of enthusiastic acceptance. That editor paid me $1500 for the piece in 1990. Amazing. So I wait, fingers crossed.
But while I’m waiting, I’m plotting my next book. This one will be a novel based on experiences I had during a sojourn in Greece. I’m working on the outline as we speak.
See you later!
