Happy birthday to me! September 1st brings a new year, 39FFY.
There is a definite value in staying the course, and working hard to find opportunities, especially in publishing. But there’s also a big component that is out of one’s control: being in the right time and place.
My little baby is crawling! It’s on its way! Not only have I sent out my first queries, but I’ve already received my first rejection for it!
A few resolutions for the blag!
One of my stories got accepted!
It’s the first one since I started doing the 100 Rejection Challenge, and after all the weeks of doom and gloom it is a very welcome change!
…. I am really, really tired of February.
We did it! We made it to 2018!
Such a weight has come off my shoulders. But there’s a lingering sadness, like watching a door be closed.
