One of my words for 2013 is “appreciate” and looking back at what happened this week, I want to sit back and truly appreciate the journey. You all made me feel so happy and cheered on and simply just wonderful about my writing and my dreams!
At the beginning of the week, I talked about contests and entering Cupid’s Literary Connection Blind Speed Dating Contest and….I made it into the agents’ round! I’m so grateful also to those organizing these contests because it must eat up so much of their time!
Getting the words “you’re in” on my entry in itself is AMAZING and definitely made me grin so much my face hurt! But…the journey to get there, both the writing of ONE TWO THREE and the input it received over the months by some truly wonderful people and the journey into the contest are things I need to sit back and appreciate. I know it’s not the end of the journey, it’s actually still the beginning…And maybe no agents will fall in love enough with this story to offer rep. But…I WILL enjoy the journey, I WILL pause and smile and think how lucky I am to have you all in my corner…(including my dear husband who gets used of waking up to me checking my emails, turning to him and saying “OMG, I can’t believe!)
Writing this post is making me smile …Anyways….let me tell you a story in Twitter format.
Before the contest
While I was sleeping
And when I woke up
(I probably missed some but know that all of your messages, comments and tweets really touched me!)
Thank you! Thank you so much for your encouraging words and your support and simply for understanding what it means to have this crazy dream!
So, tell me, what made YOU smile this week?
