Rejection and Hope
When I received the rejection to Lipstick Wars I wasn't surprised because it was too long. I loved it but I knew it wasn't consistent with the length of Crayon Messages. So I've yanked it out to try and cut it down and now it just looks to me like a piece of swiss cheese. Full of holes of what I threw away.
In frustration I decided I could just forget the whole thing if I emailed the acquisitions editor at CFI and she said she didn't want it. Well she emailed right back and said she did. It is a great story so there you go. Today I'm rolling up my sleeves and going to keep chopping away. I'm hoping to have it in the mail by Monday.
Wish me luck.
