I got three rejections this past week, two of which were 'good' ones. You know the kind I mean - regretful tone, high praise for your work, but, alas, can't fit you into their line or already have a similar author... My agent was very encouraged by the response and we've still got both my books out there, but sometimes the 'good' ones hurt the most. It's feels like I'm so close, yet just can't catch a break. YET. :)
On the home front...my daughter took her Tae Kwon Do exam and passed to 'white belt'. She's five, and while she loves make-up and all the girl stuff, when she gets into her uniform, the child is FIERCE! At the graduation ceremony, the instructor had a yelling contest with her age group, and I was sitting there thinking, "Oh, Master Lee, you know not what you do." She blew them all out of the water. Here's this tiny little girl (the only girl among six boys), standing in the line facing the audience. I hear people behind me saying "Aw, isn't she cute", and then she gives me this knowing look and quick thumbs up, then opens her mouth... I was so proud!
