R is for ‘pass’ ???

>These days, agents and editors alike seem to be ‘passing’ on projects rather than rejecting them. Okay, maybe it does sound gentler and less personal. They’re not rejecting me, they’re passing on my work. It still stings. Like today when I received not one but two passes. One from an editor by mail, another from an agent by e-mail. Ouch!

I’ll let their comments ‘stew’ for a bit while I finish the requested edits on another project. Gotta keep trying, though some days I could use a glimmer of hope.
