Try Again

I received another rejection today and I feel misty eyed. I am at a point where I am confused. I have taken two writing courses and had my novel critiqued many many times. I have researched extensively the art of query writing. I have prayed and prayed but nothing seems to be happening.

I am willing to work hard and I accept criticism very well but the reason I am confused is because I don’t know what I am doing wrong.

I thought by taking a course where I had an acclaimed author as an instructor would provide me with an insight on whether or not my story had promise. I walked away from the course feeling warm, cozy and optimistic.

 I sit here today feeling less hopeful but not less determined. Perseverance is necessary in this business. I plan to persevere!
