In the past week, I have received two kind, thoughtful and detailed rejection letters. Both praised my writing and decried the current marketplace and economy–just the sort of rejection a writer most wants to get (if one has to receive a rejection….)
So, I want to apologize for my earlier rant about not getting replies from agents and editors. I would rather wait and get a thoughtful reply than get a quick “no thanks” right away.
I will breathe patience and faith.

Those both sound very encouraging. You must be so thrilled!
Well, I’m not sure “thrilled” is the right word. They were rejections, afterall. I’m just not as disheartened as I would have been if they hadn’t been so kind.
It’s always nice to get thoughtful rejection notes like that. I’m currently collecting a small pile myself. 🙂
