Every writer has a "baby", that first novel that you ever finished. The one that took hours, and months, and possibly years of your blood, sweat and tears. Just like a child, you nurture it, protect it.
That's how I feel about my "baby" but finally I pitched my novel and got a request! Yay! After a few months, I received a rejection letter. Also my first. Boo! However, that rejection was my ticket to Pro status with Romance Writers of America.
It's taken a year and a half to start working on revisions. The editor who rejected me gave me plenty of constructive feedback but I wasn't ready to face the criticism..
Now, I'm ready. I reopened the email, printed it off and I'm throwing it on the mercy of my critique group. I'm going to share my journey with you.
Step 1: Don't give away everything in the first chapter.
