Get on board the rejection train

Having started my new year with a football game I feel I must continue the adventure by getting back on the rejection train. Yes, I've just submitted novel number 2 to a literary agent.

It's the first time I've submitted it to an agent; I went direct to a Welsh publisher with it originally but the editor there - a man - rejected it. I say that with feeling as previously when I'd approached this publisher, before I'd completed the work, it was a female editor and she'd liked it and asked to see more.

But I'm feeling strong now and ready to receive the 'thank you but no's that are sure to come my way. (I say that now: ask me how I'm feeling after the first 5 rejections.)

So we shall see. And in the meantime I'll carry on with novel 3. Except first I have to read it as I can't remember what's happened so far ...

It's completely different, anne!

I've seen it mentioned a lot so i will, sub.

Thanks, cherrypie.

I'd like the marketing of a 'proper' publisher behind me, furtheron.

Thanks, stu.
