I have in my mind that ‘the big no’ is a children’s character – and if they’re not, then they indeed should be!
So, quickest ever rejection has been received!
Normally we wait weeks.
This one, BY RETURN!
By coincidence I was reading a blog that said if you’ve had more than 10 rejections, maybe it’s a consensus from those that know, and probably your book just isn’t up to it.
What to do…?
Is it a reality check from the cosmos?
Is it my approach, or is it my product, or is it possibly both that fail the grade?
Nagging doubt sits on my shoulder, perseverance along with self-belief are retreating to the sanctuary of shadows…
Is this another hurdle to be jumped, or a reality check against my delusion of ever becoming commercially published?
I’ve had rejections before – yet somehow the speed of this reply, the emphatic nature of this particular NO; this is different.
I will try not to wallow – I will try, but dam – by return!!!
Writing is good therapy, but maybe my therapy just isn’t good commerce?
On the plus, and in all situations you must always seem the positive (no matter how small) I have achieved, I have written that mythical book that we all have inside – kudos to me.
Maybe that success should be enough.
The Big NO!
