So says the latest agent to reject me, in what they apologized for as a rather informal standard rejection. I agree. It was rather standard. And then came the standard encouragement, "keep at it, it only takes one yes." Once again, I agree. My question: If it only takes one yes, why are all these agents so darn stingy with them?
I'm considering shelving this project for a while. Not that I think it sucks, but it does have life-sucking power. As the lady said, I sent out 20 queries and got back 21 rejections. Whilst I know many of you have endured far more, one must ask when enough is enough.
Where is that one, elusive yes?
