Agony

I received the best, kindest, most amazing rejection this week.

“Thank you for your query. I think there’s a place for this, but it hits a little too close to home for me.”

I cannot stop rereading this. It is, of course, kind of the point of Cycling – it’s supposed to hit close to home. And I 100% get this feeling – in the time since I wrote it, I’ve gone through some of the things the characters go through, and it has made it rough to go back to this piece.

And I need to hear that there’s a place for this book. I need to know that other people, people who know about these things, also see something here. It’s lifted me up a bit in the midst of continuing to wait for some good news.
