What keeps you writing?
“Thanks for considering me to represent your novel, but I’ll have to pass:
I have a similar project.
I don’t handle this genre.
I don’t like your name.
I think this stinks.
I can’t handle fantasy. Don't get it.
Your grammar is juvenile.
Too much telling not enough showing.”
And on, and on, and on. Blah, blah, blah.
So what keeps you writing? Submitting? Fine-tuning?
Hope. Hope that one day an agent or editor will be the right place at the right time and you’ll have your work validated.
Don’t ever give up!
It only takes that one person to welcome a full read of your work and to like it.
Your contract could be right around the corner!
