Sometimes I'm really excited to try in the publishing market. Query an agent, keep trying, etc. But then the other half of the time - and quickly becoming more and more - I'm very discouraged and afraid.
I'm starting to think that instead of querying an agent I should create a giant bonfire with my manuscripts.
Has anyone else ever experienced crazy emotions like this? How can a writer stop the discouragement? I've not even had a rejection yet. I've not got that far. Why is this so hard, and is there anything one can do?
