Thanks, Pat D. for sharing this quote

Thought for the Day: "This manuscript of yours that has just come back from another editor is a precious package. Don't consider it rejected. Consider that you've addressed it 'to the editor who can appreciate my work' and it has simply come back stamped 'not at this address'" Barbara Kingsolver, Best-selling author of The Poisonwood Bible

Glenda,
THanks for this bit of advise. We need this when we receive those horrible rejection slips.

Yes! beautiful! and so true. I can tell you that when your publishers love your book, it makes all the difference... *smiling*
