What does a girl do when she knows her first chapter is the weakest chapter in the novel...
Ah yes, the writer goes through many emotional phases in the process of acquiring an agent. At first she ignores the fact that chapter one is the least intriguing and hopes the remainder of the book makes up for it. After all, the publishing house will ask for rewrites anyway, right?
She struggles with mourning, all the while sustaining denial. In the back of her mind she makes paltry plans on revision, but none which excite her.
Then, as if by miracle, rejections on two partials return. Their comments point in one direction only. A magical anvil falls upon the writer and smacks her on the head. Dazed, yet somehow pleased, the writer grabs her notebook and forms a proper beginning for her young adult masterpiece.
