I got a rejection letter! In this day and age of 'if you don't hear from us, it means we didn't want your book' it's nigh unto a joy to get an actual letter - no more waiting around, wondering if your e-mail actually made it to their inbox, wondering if some intern deleted it, etc. etc.
For all you agents out there who take the time to send rejection letters... I sincerely thank you. It is far worse not to receive one. And I feel like a real writer when I do get them. It's like validation... because, hey, every one is proof I'm tryin'.
