I'm almost finished the last of my edits before heading into query land.
I've been there before, but I've only visited for short periods of time. In total I think I had about ten to fifteen rejections. This time I'm planning on staying for a while.
When I read my earlier drafts of my book, all I can think is, thank goodness I was rejected, because I wouldn't have wanted that version to be my first book.
I've learned so much since I started writing this book. It has completely changed and this time I think it might have a chance. But even if it doesn't, I know I can write another book and it will be even better.
So thank goodness all of the agents I sent my first drafts to were smart enough to realize it wasn't ready.
How about you? Are you glad your first drafts weren't published?
