Well, I finally heard back from the agent regarding my book. A nice form letter that says “you aren’t the right fit”, “keep trying”, etc., etc., etc. Believe it or not, I am not upset at all.
It was good to get that letter. At least someone out there read what I wrote and gave me something tangible to push me harder. My resolve has only gotten stronger. I believe in myself and I will make it. Writing is in my soul, it leads me places deep inside my imagination and makes me feel alive and vital.
One of these days, I will walk into a bookstore and pick up a copy of my book. You just wait and see. Because I will keep working harder, working better and tweaking along the way, until the day that I get the acceptance letter in the mail.
What will I do then? I will keep on writing. Because a writers work is never done.
