So, since Saturday, I have already received 2 rejections. OUCH. Its amazing how much it stings. However, last night I received an email from an agent requesting the first 5 pages, which just happens to be basically the first chapter. And you would be amazed at how AWESOME it makes you feel to get a request like that. She may very well read the first chapter and decide she doesn’t like it, which would probably hurt worse than if she had never asked for it. But, still, there is a sliver of hope she could request a partial. (in the writing world, a partial is the first 3 chapters, or the first 50 pages…) And the hope that would inspire would be contagious.
Anyways, I was super excited, to say the least, to get that email. I made Chris get off his silly Yu-Gi-Oh game so that I could reply right away. And now the waiting game starts again.
I wonder though, do these agents have ANY idea the emotions they cause? Sadness, rejection, insecurity? But also Hope, joy, excitement! Maybe I should have been an agent! haha
So that’s my update for today… I want to thank everyone who has read my blog so far!! And I would greatly appreciate it if you share it!
