  1. hey you
  2. hey
  3. Yeah, I did the contests for the sake of forcing me to finish things within a time frame, which is my usual problem. I don't expect to win or anything, but it felt good to finally send something in at least.

    Rejection can be hard, but it's par the course for this industry. Get thick skin and keep plugging it. I'm sure you'll find someone who will love it.
  4. It's a fantasy novel! A multiple POV one. It's about a frozen world where people have to hunt down and then sacrifice dragons for warmth. So my crew goes on an adventure and finds out there's more corruption and whatnot than they were told. Fun stuff.

    Yeah I just said, smurf it, I like this, others enjoyed it, let's just send it out! Still hard to get form rejections though. Specially when you just put so much of yourself into it. I haven't done anything for contests but I probably should, maybe it'll help me get through some of this stuff with agents.
  5. Oi, sorry to hear that, but I've been there myself where I was unemployed for that long. Its not fun, though I did get a lot of writing done in that time frame.

    Glad to hear you finished a novel and you've sent it out. Good luck on that front, I hope you succeed and maybe kill two birds with one stone with the whole unemployment deal. What's your novel about?

    I just submitted a flash non-fiction for a contest and I have three other works almost ready as well, but I'm not sure if I have anything truly ready to send to a publisher yet. I keep starting and stopping the habit of writing every day due to life throwing me punches, but finally getting something sent off did revitalize my desire to stick with a routine.
  6. Still unemployed. Going on 8 months now so that's fun. I'm taking classes but the lack of income and the lack of people calling me back is wearing me down a lot.

    I did finish a novel a few months back. Started sending it out to agents this month. Got 4 rejections back already but it's not really a surprise.
  7. Meh, I'm okay. Been in the midst of rough patch, but a few key elements have finally started going my way, so I'm hoping that I can stay motivated to keep the momentum going.

    How about you?
  8. How have you been lately?
  9. Lol. That's amusing. Glad it came out good at least.
  10. That was my thought too. I made Dalton make it from scratch, he grumbled the whole time but it turned out delicious
