This month many writer friends are attempting NaNo~ a race to see if you can write 50,000 words in 30 days. I've never done the contest, but I have written that much in two weeks when an editor surprised me and asked for a full. So, I know what it's like and I'm cheering you all on.
I was surprised to get a rejection letter in the mail on Saturday. No, there were no sad feelings. I had sent in this query and partial in July 2007--yes, 2007-- and so had long ago written it off as a rejection. It was a well written rejection-not a form rejection. She really liked the chapters and my writing, but her list was full. (Funny but she was desperate for this type of story 3 years ago...) Such is the fickle finger of fate in the publishing world. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. If she had bought that book, I would not be writing what I'm writing today. I may have not gone for my MA. So, there you have it. Life in all it's wonderful interesting curves.
How was your weekend?
