The Midnight Blog

Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I had very good reasons.

One of my flatmates needed a computer and since writing can be done (and is best done) without the distractions of the internet, I was more than happy to lend her my laptop for the day. She'll need it again so maybe there will be another late night post or an early morning brouhaha, but I wanted to post to prove how dedicated I am to this blogging every day thing, and this project I'm about to do, and this project I am SO close to finishing.

That being said, PW got it's first official rejection today. And it was so lovely, I wish I could share it with you. But for now, I want to keep it close to my heart. To remind me that agents, at their core, are human beings. That no matter how many form rejections are sent, there are sometimes the ones that are personalized, to prove  those aren't the only ones out there. And to remind me to keep pushing, because one day, an agent just like the one who sent that rejection letter, is going to send me a kindly worded response that has a "yes" attached. So I'm keeping it to myself for now, but I wanted you guys to know how amazing I thought it was.

Good night you guys! I mean... good morning.

P.S. This is Due's song of the day. Enjoy! Oh and Sonal... Thank you kindly. :)


  1. I'm glad you haven't taken the rejection to heart =) PW may not be accepted by all publishers, but it'll find the perfect one. Besides, J.K Rowling got seven whole rejection letters before she finally got an acceptance letter. And the most inspirational of all: Mia thermopolis** ( although she IS a fictional character) got 65 rejection letters. So yeah, the wait may be long but in the end, totally worth it.
    xox, lots of love, Maya
    ** In case you want to read about it, just get a copy of Princess Diaries # 10. It's an awesome read, and wildly hilarious ;)

  2. Keep thinking positive thoughts Des! PW will get accepted and when it does, it will be worth the wait.

    Love always
