Rejection Letter I Framed

I just received a long rejection letter from one of the top Literary agents in New York. Although it was sad to be rejected I actually framed the letter.

This is part of what Victoria Sanders wrote:

This is a terrific concept and a smart, savvy, and timely work that piqued my curiosity and interest from the very get-go.

The work that you have done is quite admirable and productive. I can fully understand the outpouring of support and interest you are receiving. This theme you so ably explore is a perennial one, but also one that is right up to the moment. Your voice is engaging and warm, and your anecdotes gripping.

There is no doubt that you have a solid and professionally rendered project here.

Despite my great interest, however, I fear that in this still down turned economy, publishers are looking for work from authors with proven and bestselling track records.

He writes, "The more satisfied a wife is with household duties, the more satisfied a man is with his sex life."

Other marriage researchers are drawing the same conclusion.

A Perfect Madness

About not getting co-operation from her husband:

"I just end up in tears, telling my husband,'I can't do this any more.'

He says 'I want to help.'

But he doesn't know how.

Louis Anspacher wrote about marriage in America:

"Marriage is a relationship between men and women in which the independance is equal, the dependance is mutual and the obligation reciprocal."

Changing The Dynamics

When it comes to householder responsibilities, you will find that when you change the dynamics, you will discover that the old ways of doing things were in effect only because no one ever seriously thought of changing them.
