Hello my fellow "aspiring writers!" I have written a short story that I would love to have some input on. Eventually the story will grow into a murder mystery but I am trying to fall in love with the main character right now and all her quirkiness! Here is my blog of "Book #4". I would love some input!

30, Swati? Wow! It would be nice to just get an email sometimes saying "Yes we received your ___" wouldn't it?! Well what can you do but keep knocking on doors, right? My crux right now is that I'm sending queries and short stories off to kids' magazines but I can't send out the same story to mulitple pubs. So I have to really build my portfolio. Not the easiest of things to do w/ a toddler around, LOL!

Yang Mommy,
30 of them have said nothing to me either :-)!

Lori - I will look it up - sounds like a powerful memoir. I'd love to know how long it took you to complete it and if you had a professional editor?

Patricia: You took me back to my days at NC State! (And my lost southern drawl).

I'd love to be feeling SEAPODish, but heck, just getting ANY sort of communication back has been a challenge. Maybe I'm not aggressive enough, who knows :)

Patricia, it truly is a small world!

I commented on your post, not realizing that was you. One of the women who owns that website, and lives in my valley, just met with me a few days ago and I became a subscriber.

Anyway, I made a comment for you over there, and I did love your post!

Great guest post Patricia! Your lovely descriptions make me want to go back to NC. Thanks for sharing!

SEAPODS...I love it!!
Comment by Swati Bharteey on March 3, 2010 at 9:26am
SEAPODS is perfect - I feel all of those - last week was particularly S&D - LOL!
But I'm brushing myself, still grumpy though!

Richele, ditto about Swati.

Joeypouch, so glad that you didn't perish from choking on your biggest pet peeve LOL. As I said in my post, life can be funny sometimes, even if we aren't always laughing.

I think we should design a name for the way we feel when we get those rejection letters; self pity, empowered, angry, exhausted, positive, optimistic, desperate....That's it, we're SEAPODS!
