Hi all and welcome to Wicked Wednesday with me, April Zyon. How is everyone today? Me? I’m looking at my to-do list and I’m about to die. That’s okay though, its nothing new for me 🙂
So, as the title of this post says, Revise and Resubmit’s aren’t always your enemy. I’ve had more than one in my time and you know what – I now look at them as a way to do the following..
- Improve the story (obviously they saw something missing that I didn’t)
- Add to the story something I thought of after I submitted it (never fails!)
- Make the characters stronger and better
- Give you, my fabulous reader, a better product
So you see, when you see a R&R in your inbox instead of that ever coveted acceptance don’t get your panties in a bunch and run off and grumble to everyone that will listen, instead look at what the AE has requested of you, take a day off and then re-read your whole book with the AE’s comments in your mind. That’s right. Read it with their comments in mind and I guarantee you that you are going to see what they did.
Here’s the thing…
It’s a huge secret…
That’s right my darlings. We. Are. All. Human.
There you go. That’s the secret.
So instead of kicking the curb because you got an R&R instead of an acceptance, learn and grow. Expand your horizons and know that its all for the better.
Now, the real reason you are here..
The pretty men…
