Her heart sinks...
I've been making huge inroads into a new story, have knocked out 1,800 words this morning, and its not even lunchtime yet, but right now my mojo has deserted me.
I know I should be looking on the bright side. Feeling happy about the things they liked, but right now I'm feeling blue. That's okay, because feeling blue is all part of a writer's day. I'm sure when I've absorbed the feeling of being rejected I'll be able to look at it with fresh eyes. Take on board the suggestions. Maybe even rewrite to add the missing elements that make the story so godamned unforgettable that no-one will ever be able to forget my couple's story.
I just need to give it time. Have a wallow, eat some chocolate (thank goodness for Easter!) and lick my wounds. Then pick myself up the floor and get back on the writing horse again. Down, but not out. Definitely not out!
