I've also had a novel turned down. That threw me for a loop and I haven't been doing a lot of writing things right now. To be honest, I don't think I'd care very much if I never had to look at that novel again. Yeah. I got pretty burnt out working on it, and then it wasn't even worth it. There's more to the story than that, my usual angsty stuff. I'm not going into it.
I'm just starting to get involved in a little writing, and a little editing again. It's hard to muster much enthusiasm right now. But a good thing can come from this, I hope. Maybe I will stop writing and editing with a view of pleasing others, and just try to get my stories to please myself--at least for now.
