The Hunt is On!
While I have a vivid imagination, a sparkling personality and a rapier wit, selling myself on a brief introductory letter is proving to be a challenge.
My intent and dreams must come across in this brief moment of writing. And the opportunity is highly subjective. The agent I’m approaching could be having a bad day, not interested in my project, just not open to what I have to say on that particular day, the possibilities are endless. This process is a game of perseverance. Can I out last the agents? Can I be persistent enough? Can I not take the rejections personally?
Not taking the rejections personally. That is a challenge. While it truly is nothing personal on the part of the agent, I’m putting myself out their – heart and soul. My child of my imagination that I have spent so much time and energy to birth is waiting to be introduced to the world.
So, I move forward, remembering that I have to be vewry, vewry quiet as I go about my hunt. After all, it’s nothing personal as I hunt my quarry. It’s only business.
