Submission Tracking Numbers

Wouldn’t it be nice if submissions had tracking numbers? Could you imagine how much fun it would be for the stalker in all of us to find a nice little eighteen digit number with every “Your submission has been received” email? Then instead of checking our inboxes, voicemail, and spam folder—’cause, hey, you never know …

Treading Water

Ever feel like you’re just treading water? Suspended somewhere in the middle—neither reaching the goal you set nor falling short. Yep, that’s me right now. Treading water. Suspended in the middle. I have multiple submissions out, some nibbles on each piece and still I bounce around like a buoy in the open water just waiting. …

New Year and Trying New Things

So 2011 is a couple weeks in. I have a bunch of writing goals that I’ve set for myself and I’m hoping to accomplish at least a couple of them if not all of them. Easier said than done, right? To help myself along, I’ve decided to make some plans. The first is editing some …

2011, Day One.

It’s good to have goals. My goals for 2011 are pretty simple.   1. Get something published somewhere. Vague, but reasonable. And the most important goal of them all. This will be my year to get The Call. 2. Write a few books targeted to ePublishers. Totally doable. Not sure how many, but as many …

The End of the Novella

I finished my first novella this week!! It’s only the first draft, so I know I still have a bunch of work to do with it, but for now it’s done. I have to say it was much harder to write it than I expected it to be. I think it’s because I didn’t spend …

Thick Skin

A writer has to have thick skin to make it in this business. It hurts to get critiques. It hurts to get rejections. It hurts to wonder if you’re good enough. If you want to be a writer, you walk away when it gets tough. You get a critique and you take it to heart …

Moving On…

…or forward, but never backward. I’ve sent my query out to three new agents. Three seems like a reasonable and manageable number to me. So, it’s out in the world again and now it’s time for me to sit tight, cross my fingers and toes, say a little pray. Hopefully I’ll hear positive responses soon, …
