the manuscript has left the building. . . September 16, 2008

O.K. so I wrote a book. The writing was really fun and it helped clear the voices out of my head (scary, I know). However, I just mailed off the book to a publishing company to see if they are interested. It is my firt time having someone (who doesn’t know and love me) read it. I had stalled for quite a while, building roadblocks in my head. Then I was reading a blog of an agent (Kristen Nelson) and she said this:
“Considering that 90% of the population wants to write a novel but never have the guts to go for it, being in the game is a huge thing. Even though it sucks, rejections are a badge of honor. A rite of passage for when the publishing day finally arrives. Every published writer has a story of a rejection.You can’t tell a good keynote speech without it! “
So, I decided to go for my ‘badge of honor’ rejection notice.
And now the waiting begins. . .
