I got it at exactly 16:59 in my mailbox, and I’m so happy about it.
I mean every time I think about it I get a little dorky smile and butterflies in my stomach. I did not in a million years think I’d be this happy about getting a rejection.
It was from an agent who will remain nameless. She was really nice, she basically just said it’s tough to break into the business, that I shouldn’t be disheartened and another publisher may think differently about my piece.
I want to hug her. She’s just made my day. It’s the nicest possible way to write a rejection. She didn’t even say anything about my writing. Which I’ll just take as a good thing. Honestly, agent- wherever you are- I love you.
