I Got a Rejection and Didn't Die
Somewhere on the world wide web, I saw a post about Crimson Romance taking submissions. So I dug out an old MS, polished it up and submitted it. I was pretty excited when they requested a full. But I didn't get my hopes up too high. Because I knew it wasn't my best work. I like the story and everything but I wrote it a long time ago. Before I really knew what I was doing (not that I know now but I have a better idea) Then I got the "thanks but no thanks" email. It sucked but I got over it. I think I'm glad I got my first rejection on something I didn't have my whole heart and soul into. Not that I expect to get an offer right away on something else. But I'll have more faith in it. Which will make rejection even more gut wrenching. That only makes an offer even more sweet!
