So I got my first response regarding my full-length manuscript, ‘Autobiography of a College Poet: Freshman Year’.
It was rejected, as I pretty much suspected it would.
Rather than just shrug it off, however, I wanted to use this as an opportunity to keep ‘tuning up’ my manuscript to make it more appealing to publishers- hopefully enough so to get it published.
So I’m regoing through each poem- retyping them, rechoosing them, pretty much resetting up the entire manuscript using the main collection of 124 poems that I have to choose from from last year.
I’m going to make three different versions of the manuscript- one with 100 poems, one with 80 and another with 60. I’m going to make sure I edit each and every poem going into this manuscript.
And I’m going to change the name. I believe the first name was too…. mouthy, even though I really liked it.
So I’d like ya’lls opinions:
What would you like the title of my manuscript to be:
a) Keep it the Same
b) Mass Media Mashup
c) I Am a Woman Writer
d) To My First Love, At Midnight
e) or should I think of something else?
(b and c are titles of poems in the collection, d is not in the collection for personal reasons but I love that poem nonetheless)
Alright. I’ll leave it to you folks. Have at it.
