Rejection Reflection

Posted by AJ Blythe at Thursday, May 31, 2012 6 comments
My Harlequin submission is now a rejection. Ce lest vie.

However much a rejection stings (and it does) I've tried to be positive and focus on the fact it wasn't a standard rejection. I got feedback (!), which everyone knows makes for a positive rejection - if there can be such a thing.

In fact, to quote Harlequin:

...your style and voice show potential. You have a wonderfully intense, powerful voice – your heroine’s grief and stress really shone out on the page!

How can I not be thrilled with that

Apparently it was the plot they weren't so taken with. And that's okay - it changes with every story. My voice, well I'm stuck with that *grin*.

So now I'll move onto my next story. And keep my fingers crossed for next time.

All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.
