Being Scared - Part 4
I salute you!
I received well into the three digit category in my rejection tally between the different books I queried. It wasn't fun most of the time. It was downright terrifying occasionally...but still, we keep doing it.
For me, I think querying/being on submission is one of the scarier parts of the process. We line up, send our hearts out via e-mail, and wait for it to be sent back, but only after a few people stomp on it first.
Here is the truth. Putting yourself out there and risking that pain, even suffering through it more than a few times, is the only way to find success.
And we can do scary things.
