Did you ever hear that saying that good things happen in threes? Or maybe it's bad things happen in threes? Let's go with good things because that is what this post is about.
The last few days have been a whirlwind of excitement and not just for me, but for other writer friends as well. One just announced her book deal with Spencer Hill Press. You can check that good news out HERE. Another is doing really, really well in a few pitch contests and we're all holding our breath for more good news to come for her. Because it will come.
That's the thing with writing and deciding you want to do this for a living--or at least to be a small part of your living income. You have to believe. Even when you don't believe, you have to have other who do believe that will push you and not let you give up. Because rejections happen. And they suck and it's hard and can make you seriously doubt your abilities as a writer. You can give in to those feelings for a day or two, maybe even a week, but after a while you have to pick yourself back up and learn to believe again.
So what this rambling post is really saying is good things happen, even when you least expect it. So, you know, make sure you keep your teeth brushed because when those congratulatory hugs come you're not going to want to scare them away with morning breath.
And remember: Good things will come. Believe you can do it. I do.
