I just get back from vacation and was shocked to find out that Charlimac has left Rom-Criters. No!!!. Charli you are one of my favorite bloggers. I love your "tell it like it is" attitude. Let me be the first one to say that it is a sad day in the writing world if you decide to hang up the keyboard, pen, pencil, what ever you use to write.
After reading your last blog, it truly saddened me to hear that you don't feel like writing at all. Please do not let one person's over sight rob you of what you love to do. Like you mentioned she/he was young and new to the business, and like anyone starting out, I believe it is learning experience for all of us. I in no way am I defending the Agent's timing and choice of rejection, but I do feel it was not meant to be personal. How could it be. Charli you are a talented writer, one I feel an experienced agent would not have hastily rejected.
Truly, I understand that there are other reasons for your abrupt Hiatus, as you stated in your blog today. And I send you my prayers for a healthy and positive outcome/solution to all that is currently, plaguing your life right now.
Rejections are part of every writers process. However, rejections from someone who we can safely assume has less experience than us in this field is difficult to accept and I understand your frustration. Please don't let your frustration get the better of you. One day you will look back at that rejection and say, "bet you wish you hadn't rejected me now," cuz your book will be bought by a better publisher more worth your time.
I know I speak for many fellow aspiring authors, like my self, that we would love to see you back in the saddle again, if you will. Back to kick ass, dish out the truth and entertain us with your creativity and love of story telling.
So please C-mac come home, don't leave...I have a hot dish of welcome back waiting for you.
