The Upside of Failure

Sorry I've been away so long. No excuses, just a road trip holiday (from which I am still recovering) and a slight rejection induced funk (From which I am also still recovering).

Damn query process. I knew it wouldn't be easy. I totally did. Yet somehow I'd wandered into some happy lalaland where, I believed, things would come easier just because.

Big surprise. They didn't.

This is okay though. I have a direction for my revision now. And if I could find a little time to write, I might even get started on it.

The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades:

And yes, Timbuk 3 was indeed a one-hit wonder from those crazy 80's.

Welcome back. I am excited to see you in a few weekends. What happened? Did one of your fulls come in? With feedback I hope?

Perri said...

Hi Ariel,

Yes, one full with good feedback and one with not so much feedback. Back to the drawing (editing) board.

Ariel Swan said...

Oh -sorry to hear that. So it goes. At least you got some feedback. I look forward to hearing all about it. Chin up. It's only the beginning.

Angie said...

I hear ya. Those post-rejection funks are no fun! Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower. I'm always happy to meet new bloggers.

Perri said...

Thanks Ariel and Angie!

Perri (Pressing on!)

Rejection from agents stinks but it can never stop you from writing, revising and querying again. Unless both of your arms get chopped off and even then you could still use your nose and toes. ;-)
