It's Friday! Let's Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain! Tonja Drecker and I are her co-hosts.
I've spent part of this week submitting stories. I already received a rejection, but I just turned around and submitted it somewhere else. I'm determined not to let it get me down.
We finished buying school supplies for the boys, who return to school later this month. One of them is excited, the other less so, but I'm sure they'll have fun once they head back.
I'm also celebrating the surprising nature of inspiration. I have a WIP that's been sitting on the back burner for a little while. I knew the beginning of it was lacking something, but I hadn't been able to come up with something that felt right. Then halfway through the week, I was relaxing with a cup of coffee when the idea smacked me upside the head. I've since rewritten the beginning of this WIP and, while it still needs some polishing, I can say that it is much improved.
What would you like to celebrate?
I love it when inspiration hits like that, it's always so unexpected. Good luck with your submissions!ReplyDelete
Congratulations! That's so amazing when ideas and inspiration come to us like that. It's like when we try, it makes it worse sometimes. Then when we relax, they seem to flow right with us. I also got all my school supplies purchased for the kids thanks to Grandma. She was here this past weekend, so I am celebrating her. Happy Friday :)ReplyDelete
Glad inspiration smacked you!ReplyDelete
I'm celebrating that I actually wrote a blog post and am visiting around, lol. I need a few story ideas to smack me upside the head. I can handle that kind of abuse.ReplyDelete
Congrats on not letting that rejection stop your momentum. And I'm so glad I don't have to do "back to school" things any more.
Great to hear about that spark of inspiration. They usually come when I least expect it. Good luck with your ongoing submissions!ReplyDelete
Yay to inspiration! And I love that you took that rejection and just sent the story right back in. We still have to go get those school supplies...we're dragging our feet as long as possible.ReplyDelete
That's nice when your muse finally smacks you with the answer that's been eluding you to a story.ReplyDelete
YAY on the WIP inspiration. I know how that goes...ReplyDelete
