I am now officially a writer. I got my first rejection letter, er, email in my case. I'm so relieved to have the waiting over for one of my submissions at least that I really am not that bothered by it. I wish that they would say why, you know a little more feedback, so that I could improve my writing. But just the simple, sorry we cannot use your work at this time but please submit more work later...bla, bla, bla. You win some you lose some. I really haven't had much time to work on my writing lately. What I do have to do is kind of disheartening. I have so much editing to do from my nano novel that I think that it would be easier to trash it and start over. I really love my character and there are some touching, funny, and moving scenes already. Right now it's just putting it into a logical order and filling in the missing spots. Well all play and no work doesn't get me published so it's back to the old grindstone.
