Most of the time it rushes of my back and I move on determined to polish my writing until its blinding. BUT, in some cases it has nothing to do with polishing, it's just subjective. Reader/judges/agents/publishers like what they like and there is nothing we can do about it. We ARE at their mercy. I'm the type of person to look at the positive side of negative situations. This whole experience was a good lesson for me. As I have bee reading on many of the blogs this week one word comes to mind PERSEVERANCE. If you don't have it, you mine as well close up your laptop and call it a day.
That and determination will get an author published. Only the truly lucky, and yes, I mean lucky, hit a home run on the first hit. How many published books have you read that aren't up to par? How many amazing stories, like ours, don't see the light of of day? We all know the answers to those question.
So for now, my advise to all of my blogger friends ... DON'T GIVE UP! Keep plugging away and get you work to agents and publishers. The law of averages will catch up and you will see your work published. It's all in the persistence.
Now for a much more pleasurable subject, I would like to WELCOME more new friends to my bloggy family.
Jessica, Sarah, Alison, Roger, and Sue. I am looking forward to getting to know you all better. Allison, Sylvia, Laurel, Elena (A wonderful new friend, who I've already gotten to know), Mooderino, Ruth, and Olivia. Thanks for dropping by, I hope to see you all soon.
Don't forget to join the fun for my HP blogfest. If you haven't signed up there is plenty of time, just click on the Harry, Hermione, and Ron. We post on Wednesday, March 30th!
Have a pleasant Monday everyone. It's going to be our turn soon.
