Thank you!

Thank you to all who offered encouragement and support, here or in email, this past week.

I've received several more rejections since last Monday's post, and I've managed to weather them with my usual routine (a small sigh, a moment of disappointment, and then onward).

And now onward into Pie Week (aka Pie-palooza). Details coming soon.

Joannie,

I wanted to tell you that I rec'd the sarabande rejection this week and that comment about the "ironic disattachement to the narrative" (or whatever it said) wasn't about your work. It was just one comment that one of the readers wrote on a mss. So it was not a direct comment to your work!

I hope that helps you feel better. I realized they were just sharing some comments in the letter, but it didn't reflect anyone's work in particular.

Ah... I interpreted it as applying to all of the manuscripts that reader didn't select as a finalist (and who knows which reader was reading which manuscripts).

I am feeling better. It's water under the bridge, I'm on a more even keel, and I'll stop now before I launch into my silly sailing story.

Thanks again for the support.

Y'all, I got my rejection from Sarabande too, with the same note. That barb was probably about my ms (at least the ironic crapulence part...). ;)

Hugs!
