Two in one week. OUCH!

Ouch! Just received a SECOND rejection for the three bears story. Good thing for the uber-thick skin I've acquired. When I opened the letter, I hardly blinked.
Okay, well maybe a little blink. Then I ate the mini chocolate valentine hearts I bought for my kids. Pathetic. So very pathetic. And yet, I feel better...

Here's the scorecard so far:
Houghton Mifflin - rejection by blue postcard
Kids Can Press - rejection by form letter with name scribbled in by hand.
Boyds Mills - Anxiously waiting...
Henry Holt - Anxiously waiting...
Commence the crossing of fingers and toes.

Hey -- maybe I should track my rejections with the progress bar. Hee!!

Oh,I'm still crossing everything for you. I know Kids Can Press is hard to break into it.

You'll make it because your three bears story is awesome.

Yes, chocolate is wonderful balm for rejections. Can't beat it! And I'm keeping all my appendages crossed for you that you get good news soon! :)

Oh, rejections suck, that's all there is to it. However, chocolate more than makes up for it.

Keep plugging away. Keep writing as you wait to hear the news.

It'll all fall into place. It will!
