juniper: Typing at a computer. (Default)

Well, there we go then. I've done my writerly ego-flagellation for the day! (They ignored me completely last time - I didn't even get a rejection letter, that's how bad it was.)

I need more stuff to submit. However, today is not the day when I will write more stuff to submit. Today, I'm lucky if I can type straight. One of these days, I'm going to get cited for typing while sleep-deprived, and they'll take away my Creative Commons License for a year and make me write essays as penance.

But just as long as I'm not sentenced to writing Documentation, or worse, Press Releases, I think I'll survive.
juniper: Fuchsia rejected (rejection)

I got a rejection letter today from an agent for River's Wrath.

It was a *very* nice rejection letter, that boiled down to, "There are chunks of your manuscript that I really enjoyed, and chunks I didn't like so much, and I was torn...I'm very sorry I took so long dithering, good luck with your work, but I'm going to have to turn you down...this time. Please send me more of your stuff."

Ahem.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGH!!!!! Dammit! Thank you, Ms. Agent. You are now on my list of marvelous people, and you will see future work but, but...agh!

*sigh*

I'm really, really starting to think I should pull the manuscript back from Baen and ask BRAWL to crit it.
