Total Slacker!

dreamstimefree_122041So I’m a total slacker! Not only on this blog but for so many other reasons right now. First I have only written 1,894 words for my NaNoWriMo novel. What can I say but I’m a slacker :P

It has also been a while since I have read any stories/books. So this week I will be down a book review :(

Next, I have received my first rejection letter, quickly followed by a second one. This was for two different books. The nice thing is one publisher gave me a checklist of things I should fix, not that they will take it but at least some feedback is better then none. The other one wasn’t as extensive but they gave me a few ideas to improve the story. I’m kind of bummed out about it. There are two sides of me fighting right now. One side saying screw it, I don’t want to write anymore. The other, more competitive side, says screw that, I will get published. I have to keep reminding myself that even the best of authors get rejected. Still heart breaking. :(

I also have one short that is being considered for an anthology *fingers crossed* I’m hoping that I get an acceptance letter on that one.

On a much better note I am currently working with three different published authors on cover art. I’m very excited to add these to my portfolio once they are published or self published. So far the authors love my work and they are very excited to use my artwork. Although I will have to admit that the Sci-Fi cover was probably the hardest work I have ever done in Photoshop. :)

But I really need to keep my own advise and keep writing!

    Try to keep positive! I’ll kick your butt and bug you very early in the mornings if you don’t :). Everyone gets those letters. They seriously suck. And it’s hard to bounce back from something like that. But you’ve got friends and family and one very bossy writing partner here cheering you on.
