It’s Been a… Day.

 This morning, I got a rejection for my novel submission from a publisher who requested the full manuscript.  That was pretty crushing.  I really let myself get my hopes up.  

Then, I got a rejection from a market that I really, really want to break into.  But the editor did like my title.  

Then, just now, I sold a story to Bards and Sages Quarterly.  That’s good news.  Good news helps.  

Overall, I’m holding myself together.
