Submission update

One of the fulls bounced back to me in the post this morning, the latter of the two as it happens - after only three weeks which is a pretty good turnaround time.

The letter with it said it would be impossible to sell in its present form. Well, it's feedback I suppose, but not specific enough to help me revise. Maybe they just think the story stinks?

Oh well. I'd be lying if I denied feeling a bit of angst for about 20 minutes, but there's no point in self pity, is there?

So it's back to the old keyboard...

Sorry to hear this Sandra.
Not sure if you've read the post on my blog but don't think of it as having been rejected, it's a case of 'NOT ACCEPTED YET'.

Thanks Tracy,
Good advice and you know what ? I somehow feel fired up by it - I've just written 700 words of the new WIP this morning and feel really focussed. Weird.
I did read your post and you're absolutely right, it's so important to keep a Positive Mental Attitude.
Hope your writing is going well.

Good for you. Keep up the good work.
