Another Reject Letter

While today has not been all bad (I’m nearly finished with the next section of With Honor, I helped a friend out, and I got to handle Houston toads and completed a needed project at work) it has contained more than it’s share of negatives.  I forgot to take my keys to work.  It’s been raining all day, and I got absolutely soaked walking around a work.  I had to run errands this afternoon when all I really wanted to do was curl up with a book.  Two of my errands – both efforts to finish some of the details of my divorce – proved entirely futile.

To finish it out with a bang, there was a reject note in my mailbox.  It was not exactly a reject letter – it was my query letter sent back to me with a little handwritten note at the bottom.  At least I know that the agent opened it and read part of it, right?

I need to remember to look at the bright side here, too.  I still have two pending and an agent I really want to contact who doesn’t accept queries in January.  Who knows?  I’m going to have to get rejected first, right?  So I can just add this to the tally of rejects that I had to get and move on to the next response.  Maybe it will be a good one.
