Think you're having a bad day in writerville? No, I can do you one better! I promise.
First off, the series me and my cps wrote together that was in review? Well, we got rejected. HOWEVER, the review board LOVED the storyline/concept...in her words, it is an "incredible" story.....ALL the writing was "great" and got "very high marks". SIGH....but I'm remaining positive. No, really, I am. LOL
Now, to top it ALL off, and really let you know you're having a bad day in writerville...how about getting a SECOND rejection letter, in the same week, from the same editor at the same publishing house on the same proposal! What, you say? Yes, I got a rejection email on 01-31-06 on a proposal I had sitting on an editor's desk. Which was okay. But yesterday, I got almost the same word-for-word rejection email from the same editor on the same proposal! Now, THAT, my friends, is bad. Well, me being, well, me...I had to reply. Here's the gist of what I said..."Okay, Okay, I get it! You aren't interested in my ms. I understand. Really. I promise I won't submit it again. I don't need two rejections to grasp it" And then I went on to laugh and explain it. This poor editor emailed me back with a very humble apology, but thanked me for my "wonderful humor--I love that". Hmmm....wonder if I should send her a different proposal. My wonderful humor and all that...LOL
And finally, the "core" reason for my snit of a mood....oh wait, I shouldn't post about that. I'll just say that there are some serious issues regarding something I'm involved in that insulted me beyond belief and I'm still waiting to see how it works out. Who knows? All I will say is that life happens, but there is never any excuse to sit and pass judgement on what you don't understand. SIGH
So, how are YOU doing? Please share some good news with me! As you can see, I'm not having a great week. Let me celebrate someone's good news. Come on, tell me something great that's going on with you...even if it's that you're making awesome progress on your wip, you made finalist in a contest, you got a contract (actually, I'd better not hear that on a blog comment--I'd better be getting a phone call), or something! Let me hear from you!
