So glad you posted this! I'm in the trenches now.
Continually cycling between unabashed enthusiasm and exhausted dejection.

I guess my point is, I'm so glad I didn't sacrifice the things I loved about my work in order to land an agent when I felt I was running out of options. And I hope you never do either.

I hope I remember this when the bullets are flying!

Great advice to take in. As we start sending in our work, it's good to learn what advice is helpful to our MSS and what advice is not helpful. Thanks for this, AlythiaB!
