80% of me is actually FINE with this, in fact, giddy about it. Because it means that I'm finally FREE to send my book out to other agents
I've learned many hard lessons from this frustrating process, as I will probably share tomorrow in another entry.
The other 20% of me is frustrated/hurt/disappointed. Because this agent actually seemed interested! Interested enough to read chapters and ask for re-writes and re-submission! Sure, it stings. And sure, I'm not looking forward to starting from scratch all over again (which is what this feels like - back to Square One).
Onward and upward. That's the only attitude I can have right now. Because if I let the discouragement and frustration eat away at me, I'll be tempted to quit.
And I will never quit.
Where's that Rocky music when I need it? lol Oh - here it is!
