When NOT to open a query letter response

images1. First thing in the morning (because it sets the tone for your day and since rejections by far outweigh “when can we meet and make all your dreams come true?” that is usually a crappy tone for the rest of your day).

2. Before bedtime because the dreams are just sad : (

3. When you’re trying to transcribe a new story (because it’s hard to keep your chin up with all those knocks comin’ at you)

4. If you haven’t eaten all day (because that bag of potato chips has ‘I support you!’ all over it)

Two ‘partials’ leading to two rejections, both very kind, but both no thank yous.

I’m going to go read ALL the blogs I follow this weekend in an effort to get my happy back. Hope you’re all havin’ a better week than me!
