The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth

21 Mar

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.

How Not To Give Up When The Big Houses Say No Thanks and Potentially Stomp on Your Dreams

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.

Interview over at Mrs. Mommy Book Nerd

I’m over at Mrs. Mommy Book Nerd talking about Lizzy Speare and the Cursed Tomb. 

 If you could not be author, what would you do/be?
A. I would be a dinosaur.

That’s a true story. And since I know you’re dying to know, I would be a pterodactyl. Because the only thing cooler than being a dinosaur is being one that can fly.

So many thanks to Emily at Mrs. Mommy Book Nerd for letting me blather on like a fool. And when people do nice things like let us blather on like fools, we say thanks. With candy!

Oh and also – there’s still time to sign up to win a free print/ebook copy of Lizzy at I Am A Reader Not a Writer!
