You can do it, Jo- keep on and put your best foot forward. Don't be afraid to rewrite and revise to make each piece the best it can be. That was the hardest part for me- "What? Change? But this is perfect the way it is!" yeah, right.
Keep it up, though- and have a great holiday-

Jo--rejections just mean you're submitting. That puts you already ahead of the hordes who "plan to write a book, someday..." no matter how talented they might be.

Wear it like a badge of honor, by gawd.

If you're still getting only rejections after 150 or so submissions, then and ONLY then, perhaps it'll be time to reconsider...heheheh :D

Way to go!

Jo, don't you dare stop or retreat. You're on the ride now, stay aboard, and keep your targeting computer on. Never give up--never surrender.

Welcome to the club Jo. I hardly ever cry anymore either. ;)
