So I blinked and realised it has been a month since my last blog post. I remind myself of the above - I am a writer first and a blogger because I enjoy community. What has been happening you ask? (if you didn't ask... feel free to enjoy the posters and move on ;) )
I discovered Pinterest!
I started submitting my YA novel "Stephanie" to agents and publishing houses. Then as I waited, anxiety and mild depression hit. I quickly found myself in a downward spiral of darkness, spurred on by rejection after rejection. I am happy to say the dark cloud lifted and I found my way back to a happy frame of mind and a good attitude. Looking back over the past 6 weeks, I see how my (not so good) attitude together with tiredness effected my energy levels and well being.
And then came a small glimmer of hope that aspiring writers cling to... Out of all of the rejections (that just seemed to keep coming and coming) came two opportunities to rewrite and resend. Both asked for completely different changes which still has me pondering a solution.
So, as I am a writer, I have been focusing on my writing, how about you?
