Best Rejection Letter
I received the best rejection letter from an agent today.
Best rejection letter? Isn’t that an oxymoron?
Early this week, an agent I queried requested to see my full manuscript. Now today, only about three days later, I received a reply from her saying that she is not offering representation at this time, but gave me a long list of very excellent, thoughtful suggestions as well as comments about aspects of the story she likes.
To make it even better, most of the suggestions she made are things I had already mulled over in my head and wasn’t sure if I should take the plunge to make those changes. So having her opinion on it gives me an extra boost to rewrite just a little bit more…
