I've been working.
For nearly two weeks I've had no news from any source. This week brought 3 rejections. I am happy for the movement.
I just put together two submissions, right back out to two of the rejections, keeping it all in motion. I was putting stamps on my SASEs and saw that I haven't finished my box of 45, so I've got a long way to go.
This week I spent all my time working on Bought and Sold. I have a finished chapter to show for it: Pueblo Revolt.
Next week I will getting back on the query letters to agents run, sending new letters out to my 11-20 agents. I am still waiting to hear final answers from 3 of my top 10, but Lukeman says, keep it moving. I am.
This week I also received an elder I respected and used to turn to for guidance told me, "ah, no one reads anymore, everyone is on their facebook, streaming videos, etc." Adding to my struggle to continue working without a contract, a destination, without a vocal audience.
I'm sick of the process and realize being sick of the process is part of the process itself, so, as they say in Chorus Line, 5,6,7,8, again.
