Optimism is overrated

You know that earlier blog post about not giving up and being optimistic? Well, forget it!

I'm having a pity party.

Agent response from reading my full manuscript: "You’re a very strong writer and you have quite a commercial concept. That said, I just didn't connect with your manuscript to the extent that I need to in order to offer representation, so I'm going to have to pass. "

I'm going to pout for a few hours. Then I'll pull myself back together. But this pity party would be much more effective if I liked chocolate. Binging on baby carrots and yogurt just doesn't feel the same.

Oh, so sorry! And yeah, binging and yogurt can hardly go in the same sentence. (lol)

I'm surprised you can get over this in a couple of hours. Seriously, I've received rejections like that and it takes me DAYS. Hang in there!

SO sorry. Maybe you could eat a tub of vanilla ice cream if you don't like chocolate.

Don said...

Ouch! So close. We're pulling for ya.

Ouchie! I mean, yay on the pointing out of your good points but still, ouch!
