Handling Rejection

I'm heading back into the query fray, which means I'm girding my loins for rejection and returning to a lot of good advice I've absorbed in the past to make me stronger for the journey.

This post from Janet Reid has the whole thing boiled down to one simple point:

If you're querying now, or planning on querying soon, read it. And think about it until you are sure it's true. Then keep reading it and remembering it when those rejections start rolling in.

As for me, whether I'm successful or not, I promise a full analysis of the process, the stats, and what I learned from them later this year.

Wish me luck!
