Well, I’ve broken the record: It’s been eight days without a single entry, although I had much to write. And today I was all keyed up to put something in, but I just received the 16th rejection of my novel, but it was the second time an agent actually read the entire manuscript (usually they reject a sample you send to them initially).
This time, the agent said that it was “interesting to read” but “didn’t find it irresistible enough”. The rest of the letter is the usual stuff about full client lists and difficult markets.
I know that this is the deal, but man, it stings the same every time…
In short, I’ve kind of lost the mood for an entry today. Just wanted to let you all know that I’m still alive, and I’ll be getting back on soon.
