I’m not sure why I’m excited about this. But I am. The first rejection of the 100 I have resolved to receive this year. It means I can turn around and resubmit immediately. It means I’m actively trying to attain my goal of getting published. So I’m a little teensy bit excited. I even printed out the rejection (I queried via email) and I’m thinking of doing a Stephen King-esque thing like nailing it to my wall. We shall see.
Perhaps after getting a few more of these I will not be so enthusiastic.
