I know what you’re all thinking – and no – my book isn’t getting published. (Not yet. Not today.) But it is time to celebrate the little victories! Two small (but exciting) things did happen for me this week:
1) My young adult novel Virgin was chosen as the runner-up for the SCBWI Work in Progress grant!
2) I got a personal phone call from an editor who requested my full manuscript! (That’s right we talked on the phone!)
Of course, I realize that neither one of these things guarantees that my book will get published. But it’s a nice tip-of the hat saying “You’re close!” Therefore, I’m going to ignore the fact that a frozen mudslide is waaaaay too many weight watchers points and head out for a little victory drink. Baby steps everyone. Baby steps.
Never give up! Never surrender! Keep writing!
