I receive a rejection letter which makes my heart sing.
I have complete and utter faith in my novel.
I am on a journey of learning about my craft unlike anything I have ever experienced.
So when the rejection letter reads to take heart because my voice shows potential, I am elated.
I receive detailed editorial feedback and am encouraged to re-submit my project. A major publishing house recognizes in my manuscript, a novel worth publishing.
While I know there are more rejection letters to come and the publishing world is fierce, I also know the option to self-publish is always present.
I will keep perfecting this MS and start on the next instalment of my series because I cannot wait for the day I finally get to share it with all of you.
