Heard back today on my full ms.
Big old R.
I can't lie, it hurt like... well, like only a rejection can, I guess.
I think i'd worked myself up into hoping for revisions, so to realise I was too far wide of the mark to warrant them was a good old wake up call.
Am feelin' really, really blue.
BUT - it was a really nice email, lots of detail and kind encouragement, and I know that after a couple of days sticking my bottom lip out and feeling sorry for myself, i'll pick myself up and keep on keeping on.
They have said I can send in something new, which is a relief of course and I'm very glad to not have had the door closed, but just for tonight I'm going to drink wine and throw myself a pity party.
Big thank you to the minxy girls for being fabulous shoulders.
Business as usual tomorrow though. When the going gets tough, and all that.
