Not even Sunday is Safe from Rejections…

Another one came today…a Sunday. A rejection on a Sunday…it said the same thing as the other two, after reading, let’s see, this one was the query letter and the first ten pages, I don’t connect with the work, BUT that’s not to say that another agent won’t connect with the work. Please continue on with the search and best of luck…SIGH…

Life’s real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up…

I suppose I could sit here and whine which I really want to do, but there are probably thousands of frustrated writers in the same boat as me. We question why we were (oOoooOoo it’s 11:11…make a wish…again) given this gift if it’s not going to come to fruition. Sometimes I think this is my private hell and I’m being tortured…I’m standing outside the door but I have no idea how to get in the damn thing. Sometimes I can touch the doorknob but it doesn’t turn and it’s maddening.

I have no clue what I’m doing and everyone has an opinion and they are all different except for the part where they tell you to keep trying. Is it selfish to want to be successful?
