After a rejection, there is always the regrouping period where I bombard myself with questions:

Where do I go from here?  What’s the next project?  Rewrite, revise, start anew?  Old idea?  New idea?  Where do I submit?  What will give me the best chance of publication?

Usually, I can’t come up with an answer.  Or, if I do, I change my mind an hour later.

The thing is, I am a planner.  I want to have a plan and yet, in trying to get published, there are SO many unknowns.  It’s really difficult to make a concrete plan.  I guess the best I can do is… keep writing, keep submitting.

Both of which I have done the past two days.  I went over a completed novel one last time and sent it off to a publisher I have never submitted to before.  Then, I went over my revised medical to make sure it was ready should I get a request for a full.  I was happy that both read well and only needed minor grammatical changes.  I entered a contest yesterday as well, and looked at a few more.

I’m not sure where I want to go from there though, but it’s at least a start.
