Another round of editing and getting back into it.

I got my last rejection on Friday, and I have gotten slightly down about it, but today I shook myself down and got back into it.

I have the next week planned out as follows:

From now till Friday night I’m going to do a full round of editing on the first 3 chapters. Can’t be too perfect, right? [I havent looked at it for at least a month now, just to give myself a breather and so I can look at it with fresh eyes.]

At 9am on Saturday morning, I’m going to sit down with a nice mug of coffee and send off to about 10 other agents and publishers. Just to have a nice round number. Bringing the total about to 13, still a bit small, nothing to start panicking over.

I am then going to go to my stupid dad’s 50th and feel like I’m on top of the world and can conquer anything to spend Sunday researching for more people to send off to.

I’m on a positive vibe today and it’s amazing.

Rejection #5 [turns out it was only #3]

I got an email this afternoon from a literary agent. Another rejection.

They’re all saying the same thing. That it isn’t for them and to keep trying.

They’re not saying if there is anything I could change or improve. Just to keep trying and I’ll find someone who’ll take it. Every single one of them. 

I would rather for them to say if I could change anything, but they don’t and so there’s nothing for me to work on.

I’m not sure if I should change what I’m sending or to keep sending it. This was the last one I was waiting back from and now I have to send off to more agents and publishers.
