Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!
This has been a year of firsts for me.
I wrote my first book. (Which turns out to be the fourth book in my series!)
I did my first NaNoWriMo where I wrote my first book in the series.
I went to my first book signing! That was exciting, because I got to meet Ozzy Osbourne!
I finally sat down and read my first novel by a new author.
The book I read was “Near Death” by Richard C Hale.
You can find his book here
Which leads to my first review I’ve ever written which you can find here
I wrote my first query and synopsis!
I submitted my first queries!
And I am sure there are other firsts for 2011, but the one that I got yesterday was a big one…
I got my first “Rejection” I’m sorry letter.
But wait! Don’t feel sorry for me. A rejection letter can be a good thing!
- It let me know an agent took the time to read my query.
- The agent took the time to respond. (Some say that if they aren’t interested, they just don’t respond)
- It let me know that I have really got to work on my query writing. I need to do a better job of writing queries, which I actually knew I needed to, but I wanted to get the first one out there!
- And last, but not least, it gave me the incentive to keep writing!
My year of firsts was a good one for me.
I hope 2011 was good to you and I wish each of you an even better 2012!
