For my IWSG post, I’m afraid my mind is drawing a blank at the moment. I don’t have any form of insecurity to write about. But I do have something to share that happened last month.
You see, I've received two rejections. One was a short automated reply for one of my short stories for children. The other one was for one of my novels, and it was a long note. I find the latter to be a really nice one. OK. Rejections are often thought of to be one of those bad things that we have to go through. You may be thinking I’ve gone bonkers since it was a rejection for one of my manuscripts and you’re probably wondering why I find it rather nice. :--)
Well, it’s because the editor took time to write a personal letter to me and I truly appreciate that. It was a nice long note filled with encouragement and feedback. Editors are often busy. That is why I truly appreciate the kind gesture that was extended to me.
Now, what about you? What’s keeping you busy? Received a rejection note that made you smile? How are your writing activities coming along? Oh, do tell.
Below are some updates. I’ll see you next month! Sending virtual *HUGS* to all of you! Do visit me at my other blog, SLS (SittieCates Loves Stories), when you have the time. Thanks!
I’ve joined the BC Bloggers for both of my blogs (this one and my SittieCates Loves Stories blog). I’ve joined them before but I wasn’t sure if they were still active. Sadly, some of the links are not going to the site. Will check them out again next time. Still trying to figure out things there. I'm sure it's a nice group, too.
My manuscripts are doing the rounds. I’m plotting new ones at the moment to keep the anxiety at bay for those that were submitted.
== My eBooks
I’ve revised my children’s books on most eBook retailers.
I saw that all my eBooks are also on National Bookstore in the
For my eBook (The Hidden Fear of an Author…) that was initially offered as free, please know that it’s now being sold for a considerable price. I had to change it because someone used it online without my consent. Well, that goes for copyright issues. Anyway, I thought it would be best to remove it from its free offer and sell it to prevent this from happening again.
