I've missed out on a few things I really wanted this year, in blogging and writing terms. The constant rejection can be quite devastating and erode all confidence. Just when I was wondering if I should give up completely, I got the email letting me know my story was in the Hunter Writer Centre's Grieve Anthology again this year. It really gave me the boost I needed to continue, and know that I just need to keep at it.
I know I'm not alone in these feelings at the moment, so I will quote myself from last year's Proud Moments post "...to anyone else who is struggling with the crappity crap of life, sinking in a
sea of uncertainty, search your blog for 'proud' and 'pride'. You'll be amazed
what long forgotten memories and ideas are sitting there, waiting to cheer you
With Social September upon us, I'll be trying to write a few more stories, and focus a little more on the fiction side of writing...so happy holidays to you all, and see you in October (I will still be on twitter and the travel blog).
