I recieved a rejection today that really is only a rejection if I choose to not take the editor's advice.
I actually liked what the editor had to say. It resonated with me and because I truly want my books to be their best I will take her advice and resubmit. Which she said I could do.
So it isn't really a rejection letter, but a revision letter with no guarantees.
But I'm still sad. Though I feel I shouldn't be.
And I know it will pass and by tomorrow I'll be ready to tackle the changes. I just wish I could speed up getting rid of the yucky feeling in my gut and get down to work.
So I'll let it all stew for a day because I have a full schedule of family things today.
And hopefully tomorrow I can feel better and make the book the best it can be.
So what do you do to get over a rejection or one that isn't fully a rejection?
