A little Monday inspiration

This is for anyone who has ever experienced writers block, received a harsh critique when you thought your story was finally right, suffered through revisions, had an inbox full of rejections, felt like giving up...

"When we feel stuck, going nowhere -- even starting to slip backward -- we may
actually be backing up to get a running start."

- Dan Millman

Now, get your running start, and go kick that story's ass.

Love that! I'm always gearing up for a running start, but then there's no rabid dogs, so I just walk. Le sigh.

And I like the new look on your blog.

Oh man, I so needed this today. Got a rejection back on a full that was kinda mean and two rejections on my query today, one from an agent I was really hoping would take a closer look. Sigh.

Running start? Got it!
