My post on Michelle Davidson Argyle's site .........

Years ago I used to joke with friends and say, "I received enough rejections slips to wallpaper a room."  

Today I feel I do not need the approval of another.....I simply need to believe in myself.

The following are some thoughts on how I chose to deal with rejection........Here is my post on Michelle Davidson Argyle's blog...check out her site.

When I was younger I was crushed by the "No's" the point where I didn't even try to submit my work to a publisher. But I never stopped writing.

Now I am older.....And  a time came when I realized I needed to ask myself the question, "What is it about the writing process that is important to me?"

The answer for me was, "It is important to write"......and I never did stop writing.

The answer for me was, "It is also important to be read".......and so I became my own publisher.

And my three books to date are enjoying great, albeit local, sales.

I am happy with the path I am following........and since a great percentage of books that are published by a publishing company do not sell even one copy......I know I am way up on the game.

Whatever happens and whatever choices you make.....
                                          keep writing because, writers write, right?
