Another Rejection

Oh, well.

Another rejection to add to my collection.

Run, Betty, Run does not meet Pelican Publishing's needs at this time.

It was a very quick turn around, it makes you wonder if they even looked at it.

We put hours and hours into writing a story and spend hours and hours trying to find the right publisher to send it to, only to get rejected. . . again.

So why do we continue to write, you ask.

I continue to write because I love it and hope some day to get the right story to the right publisher. I love putting words down on paper and creating stories.

Why do you write?

  1. Don't let yourself be discouraged! Emily Dickinson was only able to get seven of her around 2,000 poems published during her lifetime.

    Why do I write?

    For me this is actually two questions. Why am I always thinking and telling stories? and Why am I writing them down?

    Why am I always thinking and telling stories? I MUST. My brain never stops and my mouth is always happy to tell them to anyone who will listen. Just pop me into a room with a six year old and see what happens :-)

    Why am I writing them down? I kinda hope they might help pay a few bills. Even an extra dollar or two would be nice.


Thank you for your comments. I love comments!
