House of Fire

Today’s playlist—Miley Cyrus, All-American Rejects, Jason Mraz, Mutemath, OK Go, and Paramore. (That’s quite an assortment!) 

Yesterday was horrible—upset employees, fires to put out and to top if off, my partial was rejected. Again, it’s fine. Rejection comes in all forms, and the right agent is out there somewhere, but still, I wonder how long I can stand rejection. I hear stories from authors who received tons of rejections from publishers, but what about agents? How many rejections are you supposed to receive from agents before realizing it’s time to move on?? It seems like I’m not having much luck on this book. I know it’s good, everyone who has read it is hooked, but still, there are days when I just feel beaten up. 

I guess it’s times like this, I remember what Tennessee Williams wrote, “We all live in a house of fire. No fire department to call. No way out. Just the upstairs window to look out of while the fire burns down the house…with us trapped, locked in it.” 

Bible study tonight and our first official band practice with our new drummer. Very exciting!
