Guess I’ve joined the ranks of real writers now. I worked and worked on a piece that I submitted to a contest and didn’t make the finals. The dreaded rejection. Yes, I was pretty bummed. But the cool thing is that I’m in the middle of a giving upNanowrimo book and a few hours after not getting chosen I went back to writing. Guess that makes me a grown up. No tantrums. No eating a gallon of ice cream. I didn’t just pick up my pencils and go home, I jumped right back into the piece I’m working on.

I have no idea where my writing will take me or if I will ever be published; but I know I love putting words together to express a thought or tell a story. So, as one more rejection goes in the experience pile, I will move forward continuing to fine-tune my craft.
