Thank you for your thoughtful query and writing sample.
This is an interesting concept and I enjoyed reading your first pages. That said, after careful consideration, I just didn't feel I would be the best fit for this project and so I'm going to have to decline the invitation to review more of your manuscript.
Thanks again for thinking of me. I wish you the best of luck in finding a good home for your book.
But I know that I shouldn't let anything get to me too much. We all need to do that in a way. Rejection sucks, but it doesn't mean we're worthless. People are going to like and dislike us in life, and we've got to deal with it. I'm going to try and have patience from now on and be a better person. I hope I can avoid playing mind games...
On a high note, I called someone out for cheating on an open-note test. In the quiet room, I said, "It's really pathetic that you're cheating on an open-note test." And he and his tool friend got in trouble or at least a talking to at the end of the class period. It made me feel a lot better to call him out. If there's one thing I hate, it's cheaters. Especially when they do it terribly and blatantly.
So, to sum up this post, call out those damn cheaters and don't let rejection get you down.
