Another Rejection Slip for the Wall!

It took nearly four months, but at last the inevitable happened---the first three chapters of my novel thudded back on to the mat, complete with a standard rejection letter. And then, as I skimmed through the work and the pitch letter I'd sent, I decided the agent was absolutely right---the whole thing needed a revision and a polish. So--not a negative thing at all, I've been spurred on to work harder.

And meanwhile, there's been the excitement of seeing 'Loves Me, Loves Not' appearing in bookshops like Waterstones and W.H.Smith, with my name in it, and my short story, 'Holiday Snaps' alongside the names of writers like Katie Fforde and Joanna Trollope. And the Mechanics Institute Review 6 is out too, containing my other short story. So I'm in a 'my glass is half full' kind of mood....

And I've visited the post office again...nil desperandum!
