Submit & Persist

May 7, 2018

I think writers deserve battle pay.

The rejections pile up. That’s if you’re lucky.




Yeah, because sometimes you don’t hear anything at all. At least someone is reading your stuff.

Because all that rejection can be hard to take.

Just ask some very famous people.

And in spite of all this, I keep writing and sending stuff out.

And I ask myself, how do I continue?

Why do I continue?


How do I keep going?


I keep going by writing that next story, thinking of a new manuscript, perfecting what I already have, meeting with my critique groups (because writing is lonely and we all need that emotional support and kick in that pants.)


Why do I keep going?



Ready for the secret?

I mean, are you really ready to hear the truth?

Here it is:


All I need is one Yes.

That’s it. It’s that simple.


Every time I send something out I think, “This is the one. This will be my Yes.”

And every time you send something out, you just never know.


So get out there.



   You have a whole community behind you who feel your pain and cheer you on.


       I hope this gives you that extra oomph, that reason why, that faith to go on. Because you have a voice that is not like anyone else’s and you are not alone.


So go write.

Go submit.

Find your Yes.

It’s out there.
