I know that sounds strange after all the years of rejection letters. But! That excited, happy feeling of having someone request an entire manuscript, and then to have that story accepted... It's a joy that cannot be denied. ('Alex', out in print March, 2010 from Mountainland Publishing. http://www.mountainlandpublishing.com/ )
I want that feeling again! I'm pushing myself to finish my fantasy story just to feel that excitement of sending out queries, waiting for replies, wondering if this publishing house will be the one...
Sure, rejections are heartbreaking, but that only makes acceptance that much sweeter. So keep sending out those queries!
Bye for now.
