Cut Loose

The once-interested editor eventually cut me loose and wished me luck. I was back in the void, but with a revamped product in Daddy Tries.  It was different, and most importantly, better.  It got time and attention from a few seasoned professionals who never had a bad word to say about it. Not only that, but I knew I had a potent query letter that didn’t need to be agonized over.  It was clever enough to capture the attention of the right person.

Yet I couldn’t shake the feeling that my chances of getting that close again were really slim.  How was I possibly going to get another crack at something that a lot of people consider nearly impossible? How could I get struck by lightning twice. I let that attitude dampen my enthusiasm, which caused me to put down the project.

Until now…
