Never lose hope.


Even through all the rejections and trials, there’s still a glimmer of hope. That’s what I find keeps me going…keeps me writing. There are days that still get me down. Those are the days I think about giving up. I lived without writing before. I’m sure I could live without it again. Then, I’m drawn back to the typewriter with a new idea or a way to improve an old one. I can’t give this up. What if the next one is The One.

    Hi, J. Rae. Sometimes I feel like giving up, too. But, then something happens that keeps me going. Congratulations on your winning first place! This past summer I got first place in the children’s division of the WV Writer’s Contest with my MG manuscript, Duck and Cover. It was a while before I stopped smiling.

      Congratulations, Janet on your success. Also, it is good to know there are other authors out there who feel like I do at times. May your future be blessed with more ups than downs, and keep smiling.

    I’m trudging right beside you, friend. I’ve been through it once and I’m going through it again. I followed you on Twitter and I may have messaged you… you’re not alone. I’m here if you ever need an anonymous internet stranger suffering through this same process to vent to. I sooo get it. And btw? Your stuff looks FIRE. I’m aspiring to get into being a literary agent in the next few years and honestly, if I were one now, I’d be requesting more pages bc I love the kind of thing you’re pursuing. I can’t wait to give you a read. Hang in there. And feel free to DM me. Burdens are always easier to bear when we share them 🙂
