Four rejections. Yep, the editors are back from their holidays. One of them was a novel rejection. All novel rejections are bad. I mean, in the grand scheme of things of course some of them are good, and we all want to work with someone who's enthusiastic about our book and la la sanity sanity. But short story rejections are weather. Novel rejections are "severe" weather. But one goes on, one queries again, one thinks about other things.

Um. I was doing pretty well at thinking of those other things until I sat down to write this post. Ah well. We'll get there again soon.
