I'm too busy working on my next story to attend a support group.

You should work on another story, it really takes the edge off of rejection.

Is this the debriefing room for MOD rejectees?  Looks like I'm in good company!

Still waiting for 2nd note - I submitted two.

OOh, that could be promising that you haven't had the second one, don't you think? Fingers crossed for you. And I've just started a story, thatollie, having wrapped up my nano novel for the night. Got to go and cook now, though because, as we all know, life really does still go on!  ;D

I should really grab some dinner too. Maybe I'll just make it to 1000 words for the day first though.

Aaaaand, I'm out.  Wow - two rejections withing ten minutes.  A record?

That was fun, though.  Wasn't it?  I'm curious to read the book.

Poo - sorry about that. Anyone else out there wanting to share their disappointment? I also can't wait to see the book - they must be fantastic stories to have beaten all of us!  ;D

Just had a quick look at the MOD website - the bit about the volume 2 updates - we're in good company. No one yet seems to have posted who's been accepted. Right - time to move on!  ;D

I know - but if you can't big up yourself, no one else will!  ;D
