I participated in Write Your @ss Off Day today. Everyone was supposed to put in 8 hours on some writing-related activity. I launched a new project, and I wanted to jump in with both feet so WYAOD seemed like a plan.
  • I managed 6 hours.
  • I wrote 3,544 words.
  • I experienced a power outage that caused me to have to re-write one page. (I save frequently.)
  • I received a very disappointing rejection letter for TAoCBS.
  • I plan to goof off this evening.

Way to go on the writing your tail off!

Boo about the rejection letter, but don't let it discourage you.

Stoopid rejections. The only good things to be said about them are:
1. Everyone who writes and submits knows what one is, and
2. They make the acceptance letter so much sweeter.

keep going!!
(word verification: pottesse.
You exhibit such pottesse with your writing that I know the journey from here to acceptance letter is short)

You are now one rejection letter closer to being accepted and published. WRITE ON!
