In addition to being a follower, you can follow me here by getting email updates each time I post. There is a place on my side bar to do that, for some reason I can't get that gadget to work on my other blog.
For those of you who don't follow my other blog, I haven't stopped writing. If I wasn't stubborn and persistent I would have stopped a long time ago, though.
But like these little birds, I feel like there is always room for one more. So I keep sending my manuscripts out into the world to join all the other writers and their manuscripts.
If you don't send your work out there, there will always be that nagging thought in the back of your mind.
"Did I let one get away?"
So be persistent and stubborn and keep trying just like The Little Engine Who Could.
We don't want any "What ifs" or any "If I only had of . . ." thoughts floating around in our minds this year.
So join writing groups-get other people's help and opinion on your stories, edit, edit, edit and join the crowd around the feeder and reap your rewards. The opportunities are out there if we just look for them and grab a hold.
I have sent in four submissions so far this month and have started rewriting a picture book that got me into writing five years ago. I haven't given up on that story yet. If I keep at it, I am determined I will get it right one of these days.
We need, as writer friends, to stick together and build up each others confidence.
If you know of any writing opportunities, helpful writing sites or contests out there let us know about it and I will do the same.
What have we got to lose?
If you have a writing blog and I don't already follow it, let me know and I will be glad to follow.
I have a list of writing links on my side bar. I have went through them and they all work, so if you get the chance, click on a few that sound interesting to you.
It's good to be back over here. Hope you hop on over and join me.
