  • Words That Inspire Me

    b2aba39c322c0e28e9b4ce7e683bf188

    Currently on my desk and what inspires me.

    I like to collect quotes and things I discover from across the internet. These can be scraps from magazines, drawings, scribbles that I write down from things I’ve seen. I hoard them and really should find a way to better keep them organized. For now I’ll tuck them into my favorite french book.

    I discovered this inspirational quote on Pinterest and had to share with you.

    I’m feeling very insecure right now. I think it’s because I have so many queries out with  agents and editors. I haven’t received any responses.  It’s a waiting game. Some queries dating as far back as four months. Those queries I’ll have to close out.

    More often, agents/editors won’t even respond back if they’re not interested. Unfortunately, that’s business. Or is it?

    I love agents who have rejected me with a kind note. As sad as it is, I find it actually makes me stronger. You know, to keep trudging on with my work. A lot of times, my rejections are from the agent’s assistant. I don’t mind if it’s the actual agent or his/her assistant responding. Any response is welcomed.

    So this is kind of interesting for me to learn. Rejection isn’t all that bad. Rejection for me just makes me even more stubborn. More determined to reach my goal.
