It’s not so bad. I have a great relationship, and other wonderful people in my life, a crazy but mildly fulfilling career and of course, writing. My previous post was back in January and I was on the edge of my seat, hoping that I would finally get published. You see, I actually had an inside track, a word from my GCLS mentor. Well, it did not turn out as I had hoped.
Yes, I was temporarily devastated and drank half a bottle of wine while playing Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy record over and over again. I had to get over it though and get back on my “grind” as the kids say. I have worked too hard all these years at improving my craft just to quit writing. I know I have been threatening to quit for some time, but that’s just me whining which I am quite good at. (see previous posts)
I just sent away Leda renamed Sacred Fire to another publisher. I was never sure about the title Leda, and was wracking my brain for another. I am forcing myself to be psyched about it because in my worst moments I cannot help but feel like a complete failure. But those are only my worst moments. I have good ones. Much thanks to Janette for helping me pick up the pieces of my soul this week. I also had some issues at work with a volatile parent.
In the meantime I am rewriting The Gorgon, and I did a logo for a bookseller which I hope to post here soon. I am waiting for the new owner of said logo to unveil it before I go around sticking it up on my blog. So, I guess I will volunteer my services for the GCLS auction again.
