The New Novel

Posted on April 20, 2010. Filed under: Short Stories, writing |

Well, rejection letters continue to pour in.  I have received 2 back from submissions I sent in since this little journey began.  One of them – from Halfway Down the Stairs – actually offered a critique.  That is always appreciated.  The other one took 2 months to get back to me and then sent a form letter (is it called a form letter when it’s an email?) saying “unfortunately we can’t accept your submission at this time.”  They didn’t even bother with my name or the name of my submission, so i had to look up what I had submitted.  The good news is, it was one of my stronger pieces that I am glad is back “on the market,” so to speak.

In other news, I had started a novel a while ago and then abandoned it after receiving very sage advice from my writing group – namely that i was focusing on the wrong character.  But I am ready to dive in again.  Chapter one, here I come.  One paragraph down, so far.  Almost there!  🙂
