I want to make people laugh, cry, shout, smile, frown, and overall...enjoy reading.
Keep sending. You never know when you'll hit the jackpot!
It's true that you need to persevere and not give up on your dreams, Jeanette. Even famous authors like Dr. Suess got dozens of rejections before his books were accepted. The Chicken Soup for the Soul authors got hundreds of rejection before they were published.
I am hoping that you get an amazing offer so that I become a travel mate. I think I would like that ! :-)
Keep sending! The woman who wrote the help was rejected 60 some times before someone said yes.
Oh I will keep a sending. Nobody's Gunna Break My Stride. (Loved that early 80's song by Matthew Wilder)
Rejections are hard, but it is important to keep trying! It can take a lot of queries before someone makes an offer. :) The author of The Help was rejected over 50 times and some of them weren't so kind. I read a wonderful and inspiring article in which she described the process. Wishing you the best of luck!~Jess
Lol- as I hit send I saw Kathryn's comment! :) We thought alike.~Jess
