I am currently going through the query/rejection cycle for Genocide Moon. I was discussing with my editor and had some existential reflections. I try to be open to growth as a human in any and all situations, including this one. If I am successful in my quest for publication in the traditional market it will have taught me perseverance and hope. If I fail, it will teach me to find joy in creating, independent of monetary gain or recognition. Either way, there’s wisdom to be gained.
