I've sent out seven queries on Stratagem. Yesterday, I got my first rejection.
And it left me giddy. Which is...strange.
It was from of my dream agents, actually the assistant of said dream agent, and yet, I was just thrilled that they deigned to send me back a rejection email. A form rejection email.
But they sent it to me. I feel somewhat like a real writer now. Before, I was just someone who wrote books that no one read. Granted, it's still not read. But it's been out there. My query, of my book, has entered the publishing world, if only enough to dip one's toe in. There's something official about it, don't you think?
Has a rejection letter showed up in your inbox? How did your first one feel?
