I was rejected. Twice! The first one wasn't to bad but the second was devastating for a full 24 hours...until I received their notes. I'm not wallowing here, I promise. Just chatting about rejection and maybe a little about the pressure we feel to not feel our feelings in public.
Also, I'm revising my first novel! It's been a source of embarrassment to me for a while. A few weeks ago I decided to take the plunge and revise, revise, revise!
Thanks for listening!
