I don't know why, but I can't leave the same thing up on my blog for too many days or I feel like I'm a slacker. But at the same time, I can't think of anything relevant or interesting to say!
Piper and I are the speakers for this month's RWA chapter meeting. It is on what editors look for in a manuscript and also what not to do when sending a manuscript. I feel like I can help a few, but most of the members who come to the meetings have most of what I'm going to talk about down. And I'm not from a big publishing house. So what attracts me to a story, may not be what attracts someone from say Avon or Berkley.
Anyway, I'll give my 2 cents and some examples and hope we fill in the time without boring too many.
What have editors said to you in rejection letters? Were they words that made you feel good even though they didn't want your work or did the letter stop you from writing for a while?
