Hope & Perseverance

WORDS ~ With a week of gray days behind me, I have decided to write a little pick me up.  A ditty of hope and perseverance if you will.

As some of you may know, I was let go by my editorial agent last week.  With a move to a new agency, I just wasn’t on the top of her list to bring along.  It happens.  It wasn’t personal.   Our relationship just hadn’t culminated into that happily-ever-after connection we were hoping for.  Deep down I knew it was coming, but that realization did not make the ultimate rejection any easier to swallow.  I’ve never been thick skinned. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I consider these to be pure and true qualities and over the years have learned to embrace them.   Still, I was not a fun person to be around the last seven days.  (However, reading blog posts like this one, certainly helped! http://www.writersrelief.com/blog/2011/07/famous-author-rejection-letters/)

But, another trait of mine that I hold a bit higher than the others is my won’t stay down for long attitude, a.k.a. perseverance.  I’ve never been a quitter.  A reinventer, yes.  A chameleon starting fresh, yes, but not a quitter.

So, with my now edited manuscript in hand, the search for representation begins anew.  And with the exciting, fresh perspective of the possibilities that are still out there for me, I embrace this opportunity and look forward to what the future holds ~

ART ~ I can always count on Diane Sullivan and Seven Days to keep me working on tongue in cheek projects that keep me entertained and loving what I do from beginning to end.

Here’s the latest Seven Days cover:
