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!
