JennifersLost Posted July 9, 2008 Share Posted July 9, 2008 I'm a little down. I queried an agent about my book and got a rejection in three days flat. I'm grateful for the quick turnaround, but feel I'm going backward. My last rejection was personalized, this one wasn't, LOL. And, as usual, I'm evaluating life. What is it for? What am I doing? Why try so hard? Why not just have fun? If I'd spent all the time that I've been writing working as a bookkeeper or something else, I'd certainlly have more money. I doubt writing is every going to make me famous, and even if it did, would that make me happy? What is the point? What is the point of any of this? Why do the things that are supposed to be fun not seem like a whole lot of fun? Don't get me wrong - I'm enjoying family, enjoying the beautiful weather, enjoying swimming and playing.....sort of. I just want a major accomplishment to show for all the work I do. I want to be able to say, "Ta-da!" Here's what I do locked away in my bedroom typing all the time. I feel like a bit of a failure today. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
