Today I recieved a rejection on my full of Spirit World. Not horrific in itself because the agent offered some very nice compliments as well as some helpful feedback. However, I composed a thank you letter and hit send before I realized I had actually used a homophone for a word I had intended. Not cool for someone striving to be a writer.
FWIW, everyone seems to adore my depiction of the stepfather. At least that's a win.
