A highlight: With the two pages of suggestions were the words, “Revise and send back.” My heart skipped to the moon over that one. Did I revise? Did I re-send it? You bet I did. To give you an idea of how the publishing world works I have to say that yes, I did all the revisions that was suggested to me, and I sent it in. They had my manuscript for TWO YEARS! By time someone actually read it, with revisions… the editor who gave the suggestions, had moved on. I asked for it back. This is how it works. Editors move on. Rejections come, and rejections go. You cry. You laugh. The one thing you will want to do is NEVER give up on yourself, or your writing. If you keep getting rejected over and over, it might be time to do a big revision. Do it! Keep pushing, keep polishing, and keep submitting. Keep at IT! Don’t give up! You will soon learn that rejections are a part of a writer’s life. Like it or not-this is how it is. But, when, and I say WHEN not IF, you get accepted-it will be the most fun, proud thing you’ve ever done! Honest!
