I got my first rejection today. The story I had submitted to The Weekly News last month was put out of its misery with a short but sweet no thank you. It is a very good thing that I spend half an hour last night reading 'Your Writing Coach' - the section on rejection and how even publishers had rejected Harry Potter before it hit mega sales and people went Harry, Ron and Hermione mad.
I won't let it get me down. I know you have to break a few eggs to make an omelette and many other cheesy clichés such as that so I shall get back on the horse and not put all my eggs into one basket.
Also, with the best intentions, I have drawn up a work planner to see what can be fitted in and where. I have stuck to it so far getting the balance between writing, blogging and reading in there as well as free time. There's loads I haven't managed to work in there but I'm sure things will get easier and who knows maybe one day I may get that 3 day weekend.
I'm sure there was more stuff I had to say but I'll be back tomorrow (it's in the timetable), that and Shameless is on 'PAAARTYYYY'
