Upgrades are hell

I shouldn't have tempted fate when I wondered if I might receive a third piece of good news this week. What I actually got was a third rejection! Never mind - it was a very nice rejection and I got the feeling it was only just missing the mark.
My PC asked me if I wanted to upgrade to Internet Explorer 9 this week, and stupidly I clicked on the yes button. Now I find I can't do a lot of the things I used to do; whether its because I can't find the appropriate box or because they really have removed the action from the upgrade, I don't know. But it is causing me problems. I wanted to post an excerpt here from Shadows, and though I have the piece all neat and tidy in my documents file, I don't seem to be able to save, cut and paste it into here. A rather serious drawback, in my view. I'm seriously contemplating going back to IE8.
But then it is Friday 13th. Perhaps tomorrow will be better. Here's hoping.

A rejection that feels as though you're not far from garnering interest is a major coup, Jen. I got a few of those before I was picked up by LBA. Keep going, and be willing to act on any criticism in the rejection letter ( if there is any ). Agents don't bother to write proper letters unless they're impressed with what they've seen - they just don't have the time.
