Life has crept up on me with non-writing commitments these last few weeks and it feels strange to acknowledge just how much time has elapsed since I posted anything new on my web-page. The satisfaction of putting the finishing touches to my WIP was horribly dented when I received a stock rejection from one company, but after a couple of days licking my wounds I forced myself to start thinking of a new story. I have found for me, disappointment can only be pandered to for a short time or I’d probably end up wallowing in the puddle of despair forever. There are so many publishers out there, and so many more stories to be written. Wallowing only wastes the time I should be using bringing another story to life. Here’s to conquering all the disappointments we face in our lives.
