Two queries out...

Ok, so not a spectacular number there, but better than nothing! I'm in the midst of judging AND am expecting more contract work as well. But I keep plugging away. Every time I think I should give up, I read some of my favourite scenes and get inspired again. I LOVE this story so much.

How do YOU stay inspired to keep submitting?

Our weekend looks to be a busy one, with family coming to visit. Should be fun :) Especially as, at least for Saturday, the weather is looking half-decent.

Congrats on sending out those queries, Teresa. It's hard to do but the only way to win!

Thanks DM and Annette :)

Woo hoo! Two out the door and hopefully two requests coming back, right? :-)

How do I stay inspired? Going to the bookstore and telling myself that SOME DAY I will have a book on the shelves!

Good luck with the queries!

As for staying inspired...I just think what my life will be like if I have to spend the rest of it sitting in a pod shuffling paper. That keeps me plugging away.

Thanks, Melissa and Kelly! And it's good to hear what inspires you to keep on with this crazy business :)

Congrats on getting those queries out.

How to stay inspired when submitting? I think I finally realized the worse that can happen is they will say no. It won't change how my family feels about me or the car I drive or the house I live in. The important things will remain the same.

Thanks Rene - words of wisdom :)
