The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth

I know I already wrote a post today and I’m sure that is MORE-than- enough-from-me-thank-you-very-much, but then Pen and Muse published this essay that I wrote.

And I have to say that more than any other blog post that I wrote this one really means something to me.

Mainly cause it’s about getting rejected by every  major publishing house in America, which you know, isn’t the easiest thing to talk about. And it certainly isn’t something to brag about. Hey, look at me everybody, NO ONE wants to publish my book!

Yeah.

So, why did I write it?

Because when I was in that year, getting rejected, I really could have used to read something like this. I could have used to hear that IT DOESN’T MATTER.

So this post is for all those writers who are getting knocked around. I hope it helps.

Postscript:

Then this happened.

See. That’s why it was written. There’s NO SHAME. Not anymore. What matters most of all is sharing the Art. What matters most is Creation.

I live in Brooklyn which is good except when it’s not which is horrid. I’ve been writing for awhile, and have some stuff published and some stuff not. I don’t like when people refer to pets as their children and I can’t resist a handful of cheez-its when offered. I have a burning desire to go to Antarctica, specifically to the South Pole so I can see where Robert Falcon Scott died. I like to read books. I like to write stories and poems. I even wrote some novels. You can read them.
