Hey everyone! This is starting to become a good habit, yes? New posts every few days, like I used to. We’re getting there.
What to do when you don’t know what to do:
Don’t panic. Remain calm. Do not let your shot of espresso make you hyper. Talk to your friends. Let them know what you’re struggles are and hear what they have to say.
A few weeks ago, when I got the rejection letter, the first person I told was my BFF (and self-proclaimed PA). He heard me out, and then turned everything around, helped me get back on my feet and I sent my novel to more publishers.
Like today. I got another rejection letter. From a publisher I really like. More than Limitless. A repeat of last time. My BFF is the first one I go to. I showed him the letter, and what does he tell me? “Don’t be sad. Keep trying.” I admit being really disappointed. And as usual, he manages to get me to smile again. So, I’m not giving up yet.
I still have self-publishing on the back burner. I am prepared to take a step in that direction the moment I am able to afford it. I mean, it costs money for everything. Graphics designer(s), print proofs, possible interior formatter for both the print and the e-book. Everything costs money. No matter I decide to do, I am gonna need to spend money. But to spend, you gotta have it. So, I’m working on ways to make my money work for me, and not me for the money.
