Querying, Writing, Writing, Waiting

I'm querying my first novel. I've sent only three queries so far, but I have one rejection. I'm so elated with the query process right now that I'm actually happy to have a rejection because it means someone looked at my stuff! So when I post a few months down the road and am continuing to get rejections that just depress me, please remind me of this high feeling I had today.

I'm also working on two projects. Continuing along with my singularity idea and starting another literary novel about a girl who is constantly reaching for dreams but every time she gets one they just fall apart. It's still in the baby stages and fairly fragile so I am handling with care.

The singularity novel is blossoming. It's become something I did not expect. In order to begin a story I need to know the ending, but I usually only know a few scenes in the middle to get me to that ending, then I just let the story run. Well this one has gone some strange places. It's becoming more action than I'm used to writing. It's refreshing and difficult.

Good luck with your querying. :) You've got a great attitude about the process. Just by taking that plunge you're already ahead of a lot of people who are afraid to.

Good luck querying. Hopefully, I'll be there (in the trenches) soon. We'll see.
Hope you are well.

I am very proud of you, the stepping out that you are doing for yourself. You are very courageous! You have the makings of a hero.
