I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been busy editing my first novel for my publisher and editing my second (different universe than the first), all while writing a sequel to the first. It’s been busy but awesome. My editor said the first round of edits went well, so yea!!! The book should be released this summer. It’s still hard to believe sometimes. Last year, I’d had my first rejection from the Kindle Scout program, and I felt gutted at first. Since then, there’s been more rejection and then, amazingly, acceptance.
People told me to keep working and not to give up. That’s turned out to be good advice. I don’t want to turn this blog into something a motivation speaker would write, but I think writers need to hear positive things. It can’t hurt. That said, I also have a warped sense of humor sometimes. That also helps. See the demotivational poster below. If you’re feeling down, read positive stuff but also laugh at the wonderfully ridiculous, especially if it involves robots. That’s today’s advice.
