Is This Good News or Bad News?

I was reading through my latest RWR (Romance Writers Report) yesterday, and came across the page on First Sales. I can't wait to see my name there, so I always enjoy reading the information about these newbies to publishing.

Then I got to the announcement of Kelly St. John's first sale: "Good Girls Don't". In the paragraph about her it says, in part:

... and has been writing romance for four years. "Good Girls Don't" was the 20th full-length manuscript she completed before selling.

The 20th full length manuscript?!?!?!? TWENTIETH?

I mean, congratulations Kelly, really... but WOW are you ever perseverance in action.



I'm only on #3...

...the 20th...

mutter, mutter, mutter
