I found this article the other day, thought it may be of interest to those of you who, like me, want to have their work published traditionally. It explains some of the cryptic replies agents usually give.

Has any of you tried or thinking of trying querying for traditional publishing? Have you encountered these types of rejections or something similar?

  1. Thanks so much for sharing this.
    I have received a few rejection with the ‘I don’t love this enough’ reason, and i think one of the motivations mentioned in the article might be my problem.

    I still don’t know how to solve it, in fact, I’ve tried to solve it for a few months now. It looks like I haven’t pinned it down yet, but it’s nice having kind of an idea. Agents’ reaction really may be maddening…

    1. You’re welcome. I hope it helps. Keep in mind that what is often refused to us at first, has usually a more profound effect on us and we enjoy it more once we achieve it. I wish you all the best 🙂
