First rejection letter

I just recieved my first rejection letter. I'm wondering what made him reject me so I can correct it. The letter didn't say. Could it be the word count? Or maybe he just didn't like the idea of the story? The word count is only 70,000. For a fantasy novel that's short.

What should I do? Try once again to increase the word count or keep on going? Part of me feels that if an agent likes the sound of my query letter then the word count won't matter. They'll just ask me to increase it if they feel it's too short. Right?

I've never done this before and could really use some advice.

New here

Hello everyone. I'm new here. I'm currently working on a novel that I hope to someday get published. Lately, when writer's block strikes, I've been researching what goes into publishing a book. Wow!

So, here I am. :) I hope to learn a lot from this community.

---------------------

i have been writing &dreaming of being a successful writer for as long as i can remember. when i was in second grade i wrote a poem called flower. it was surprisingly good for a second grader. haha. i remember sharing it with a much older friend who was in my afterschool care program with me. she told me that there was no way i wrote that &i had gotten it from somewhere else.

i don't know if that is when i decided i wanted to be published, but it is definitely one of the first writing experiences that i remember.
