Always Darkest Just before the Dawn
Add to that a lawn mower that won't work, slow plumbing, and other maintenance issues, no work, and bill collectors who offer to make my life easier for $500 a month - well, I was not very happy.
But I spent some time thinking, and praying, and talking to my good friend/co-author/lil sis SL Danielson, and I managed to weather that storm. I'm feeling better, in fact I wrote some more on our ongoing second novel in a series we're doing (hope to get the first one accepted soon).
It's always darkest just before the dawn. How true that is. Things could be worse - also true. I believe in myself - as a writer and as a person. I will more than survive, I will thrive.
There is nothing so difficult that we cannot get past it, eliminate it, overcome it, and move on. Everything changes, nothing is static. I sent out a sub to an agent regarding Revelations, I hope to hear from her. I also subbed it to Tor - hearing from them would be awesome. I believe it will be published someday.
It's not easy to become a self-sufficient writer, especially in this economy, and especially when it seems like there are too many writers out there, and not enough readers. But I know in my heart that it's what I was meant to do. Writing is my destiny. And I'm going to keep at it until I can't write any more - hopefully until the day I die.
I have a lot of stories to tell, and I hope to tell them all, and then some. I will never give up, never surrender. I hope you all stick with me for the ride!
Tomorrow, a special Silver Flash - I have two stories to share! Come back and read them!
Until next time, take care!
Love and hugs to all of you!
