Query Response

I had sent my query to two agents earlier this week. I received my first rejection today from one of the agents.

The response e-mail, while courteous and encouraging, was a form rejection. I’m disappointed but not surprised. What are the odds of the first agent wanting to see more of my MS?

Writing is a risk. I’m investing so much of my time into writing a novel with no gurantee of it ever getting published. And I’ve only just begun. It is not unusual for someone to spend 7 to 15 years before they get their first book in print.

Do I want to be a published writer badly enough? Do I have what it takes to persevere?

Only God knows and time will tell.

I’ll continue with my writing and collecting rejections.

    You can do it! Just keep trying and waiting…it’s hard, but it’ll be worth it 🙂

    Of course I’m not speaking from experience as I’ve never sent out queries before…but my time will come soon.
