Life and it's chaos!

I'm not old enough to think that I know everything that there is to know about life, but I think I've learned the single most important point! Life is crazy, and I just realized that we have to go after any opportunity that presents itself. Be brave--go after it even if it scares the hell out of you. Do it, and don't walk after them run--chase after them until you take hold, and don't ever let go because that bitter feeling in the pit of your stomach that forms when you look back, and realize what you could've had is the worst feeling ever! Don't let that happen--ever!! Just take the chance, and make your decision worth it!!

Round Two

After convincing myself that I needed to self-publish because I was so discouraged by all of the no's I received, I have decided to postpone that thought for another round of queries.

I was re-inspired by one of my editors, and close friend, who carefully encouraged me to try again--just try again. Can I just say that I am glad to have people in my life that are always encouraging me to continue and press on like my family and some of my close friends (the list is endless by the way). So after I got back my query letter from one of my editors, I have fixed the errors and format, and am into a new round of edits! Hooray for me!?

I now understand the constant advice, or 'don't be a writer if you can't hack the no's,' it is so important...because it's true, and now that I feel that I have recuperated from my last no, I am ready to put on the brave face and go at it again...

So here goes...

I love whoever has read my pages and told me that it was good!! After several rounds of edits I feel that I missed a few key things, and I changed as well as added some thing. I know now, that I should have waited until this process was done, but I was just so excited to have people read, and critique it that I posted it on here before it was ready,  (I still feel like it could do better) but without further a do the new version is on there. In the next couple of days I will add some posts about the small details I've changed, or added to the book to make it better...

So, thank you for all the nice compliments because they have kept me working diligently!
