At least I know. I sent a follow-up email this morning to the agent that had requested my full manuscript of "Down in the Creek". I didn't expect to hear back so quickly. Twenty minutes later, I had my answer. She regretfully had to inform me that their company had suspended all acquisitions of new material to focus on their current clients. She mentioned that I was towards the top of her list, but it might be quite a long time before they could get back to me.
I will have to keep looking and start all over again, querying agents and waiting for more rejections. Maybe it would be easier to start wishing on bright stars.
I said that I would praise God no matter the outcome and I am pleased that he let me have the experience. I praise Him, but that doesn't mean that I'm not hurting. Why is it so complicated?
I could really use that frying pan right now. I'd like to knock myself over the head for a little bit. I am going to be strong through this, but it is hard. God, please let me lean on you.
