Well, my first official rejection letter has been received in just under 24 hours! Woo hoo! I'm that much closer to being accepted, right? One thing I think the book business will give me is thick skin. This would be good since at the moment, I'm pretty sure my skin is not only transparent but also full of tiny little holes. Time to toughen up and take it like a man. Even Ernest Hemingway got rejected a few times.
