But them's the breaks. At the end of the day, it all comes down to who your reviewers were and their personal taste. So, I'll wallow a little today, feel a little sorry for myself, but tomorrow I'll be back in the query trenches, ready to foist my little story on the world.
I think it also helps that I'm probably going to finish my rewrite of Tail Lights today or tomorrow. There's nothing like the exhilaration of finishing a project.
Did any of the rest of you make it through to the Quarters? Le us know so we can root for you.
So sorry to see you out this round :-( You're right, it's a subjective business and obviously the judges didn't know all their stuff this time around ;-) (we tell ourselves these things to feel better, ne?)ReplyDelete
You're still epic, though (((hugs)))
Guess we won't be meeting up in NYC this June then.... There's always next year.
