yay!!!

The publishers got back to me quickly about the submission of my manuscript. The lady liked the manuscript enough (even though it was a rejection) that she gave me lots of detailed hints on how to make it submissible!!! That never happens, guys.

So... back to the word processor. I'm excited. It's so funny how it's hard to see the weaknesses and strengths in your own work, while you can easily pick apart even bestselling novels. But I've got somewhere to go now, and I know right what things to hit. Yay!!!

Here's to developing as an author.

To be on the "in" crowd, do I have to say "I'm jealous" too? I WON'T. (but if you see me turning green...

That's really so true about taking others' views and tearing into our own work to make it better. How much like life! Uh, personality, I mean. And character.

Good fortune to you!

I'm so happy for you and am impressed with your perseverance. It's inspirational...makes me realize that I need to stop blogging so much and get into the "projects" that I've pushed to the side.
