It’s amazing the resilience of the human psyche, isn’t it? One moment, you’re down. The next your back in the game.
I keep getting reject after reject for my queries so what do I do? I keep editing my query letter, editing my novel, and researching agents and mailing off more queries. Yeah, I get down when a reject lands in my inbox. But I’m learning to think, “That agent is just not for me.”
As I research and research literary agents, there are HUNDREDS out there! I didn’t realize there were that many! Out of these hundreds, one has to love my work, right? Or does it just suck?
Sure, there are good agents and bad and one must be careful. But with research and guidance from God, I’ll find one, I’m sure.
This is my third work so surely I have it down by now, right?
I’d love to hear how you cope with rejects.
