You guys are all so great. I can't tell you how much your support and encouragement mean to me.
And, I feel it's only fair that I mention (since several have offered their baking services):
Here in twenty minutes or so, I'll be pulling a fresh, hot batch of brownies (a handful of chocolate chips were tossed in for good measure) from the oven.
My spoon is poised...
Bring on the rejections! Because as discouraging as each one is, they make me stronger. And they get me that much closer to the agent who'll say "Yes!"
I promise not to swallow every rejection with a helping of fudge brownies. That could cause problems...
