Things that Amuse Me: Laugh at that Rejection

After a year spent revising, last night I started querying again. A good chunk of The Lurkdom knows the ups and downs of querying: how it's a waiting game where you can go from super manically happy to downright suicidal in the course of the day*.

This being the case, let's have a laugh at rejection today on The Pie.



Disclaimer: The staff at The Pie does not endorse writing snarky, rude response letters to industry professionals or ranting about said rejection in a public forum. We at The Pie understand rejection is part of the road to publication. As yours truly said to her father during her first driving lesson: "Whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger."




* We won't even go into how many times I've checked my email since I woke up this morning. OCD doesn't even cover it.

  3. Ha, that's brilliant! Best of luck with it, and try not to break the F5 button on your keyboard. It's a hard time. Tahereh Mafi sums it up well.
