After receiving feedback that isn’t “We’re dying to buy your story,” it’s easy to feel disheartened. I tend to think the answer is to come up with an action plan. It’s also good to have more than one project going.
I have started and laid aside an adaptation of book about the Gilded Age. I’ve resumed work on it and will make it into a play. I’m hoping that theatres are more open to submissions from new writers. Time will tell.
I’m also brainstorming for ways to revise my television series pilot and I’ve written two letters to see if more professionals will read and consider the story.
