What? Did I say happy?
Yup. Gotta get past the noes to get to the yeses, man.
Besides, I have a rejection pledge of 100 for the year.
Interesting note. While I was on the Oregon Coast I met a writer at a book signing, got to know him, he told me he thought I was a good storyteller based on our conversations, and he has started a new publishing company. Cool. If I can't land a big boy, he has invited me to send him my work. How cool is that? Oh, and the gentleman is: Dan Bessie,
Then, the next day I talk to a woman at one of the book stores and she is friends with a literary agent. We talked for a while, exchanged information, and I got to thinking: I go up to Oregon for vacation and in a couple days I land as many connections (2) as I have in Southern California over the last three years (2). How weird is that?
They both made a comment about me that I appreciated. They both said, "I like your attitude. You are destined to be published because of it."
Thank you. I took that to heart.
Ciao for now,
