The First Rejection!

And here we go!  That didn't take long.  In the search for representation for my novel, there are bound to be a few rejections along the way.  Of course now that most agents take email submissions, there's not nearly the waiting time there was back in the snail mail days (hey, it's been a while since I've done this).  This one was nicely worded . . . I remember one I got back in the late 80s where the editor wrote in red pen on the front of my manuscript "don't quit your day job."

Thank you so much for querying us with your project. Unfortunately, we did not feel it was the right fit for our agency. Thanks for thinking of The *blank* Agency and we wish you nothing but the best in your writing career.

Let me translate that for you.  "Thanks, but no thanks.  No need to contact us again."  And now we move on to the next victim on my list . . .
