I've had a bunch of close calls. Making shortlists, personal rejections from markets I once only dreamed of subbing to, and great feedback. But they're not sales. And that's what I want.
On the one hand I guess it means I'm improving. On the other hand it can be frustrating getting so close only to be rejected. But a miss is as good as a mile, they used to say. Close, but no cigar.
These are good stories, and I have no doubt they will sell. It would be nice, though, if it were soon.
In other news I'm currently setting up a music blog with an old friend. We're currently determining the scope and the format. And the name.
A good name is vital, and we've started shortlisting. More information on that when we're closer to launch.
Have a great week. I plan to.
