After a few days of wallowing in self pity and the return of DH, I realize that one rejection is not the end of the world or my writing career for that matter. So I’ve decided to develop a thicker skin and take a few steps back from my novel. Perhaps a little distance is required to gain some perspective. I pitched my YA Paranormal Fantasy novel at SIWC last year and this past October as well and the editors and agents seemed very excited. I have told myself that maybe they were being polite, but the little voice inside me sometimes says encouraging things as well. It’s telling me that my concept is pretty fresh and if I stick to it people will get to read my novel. After a nice pep talk from DH, I’m ready to move on. After a night out for Karaoke of course.
