When you’re a hammer, every problem looks like a nail

I just finished working on my ninth chapter in my second book. Between chapter 8 and Chapter 9, I think I wrote myself into a corner about 5 times. It’s an odd feeling to have complete control of a conversation and to look up and say “Well, I don’t care for how that went.” It reminds me of the old saying that “the problem isn’t when you talk to yourself. The problem is when you can’t get a word in edgewise. “

With that in mind, I received a very pleasant and constructive rejection just a moment ago. I can’t lie and say that it doesn’t take any wind out of my sails but I do appreciate the honesty of these agents. I’d hate to have someone not feel any passion for representing my work because I know I feel passionate about it. That being said, I’ll just keep hammering away.
