Well, I should have known better than to get my hopes up high.  I sent my manuscript out and it was rejected. It hurt knowing that someone read it and rejected it out flat.  I thought that if someone actually read it, then they would see how important it is and represent me. 

Not the case.  In a lot of ways, I want to give up.  Say screw it, it isn't worth it.  But, it is.  So many people have been hurt by bullying. So many people are like me and feel the need for physical pain to ease their emotional pain.  My story needs to be out there, published.  It is going to be a longer road than I thought.  A lot of bumps, and bruises.  I won't give up yet.  I have two conferences to go to, to pitch my novel.  I have also a private publisher reading my ms and helping me fix my faults.  Writing is hard, getting published is harder, but I can't give up yet.... I just can't!

  1. Hi, I just wanted to send out some positive vibes your way. I know how frustrating rejection can be, especially when the story (and message) is something that you are so passionate about. I'm in law enforcement and I work with teenagers.

    It's disheartening that many of the children who are predators learned this behavior after being preyed upon by others. There has to be a way to break the cycle of violence, and I think one way is through books that address this issue. Don't give up, it's too important.
    Good luck
