Writing ups and downs…

I’ve been making leaps and bounds with this one project.  I am thrilled with the progress and think it is a great project.  I can’t wait to see it published.  This project is dear to my heart.  Unfortunately, the editor I was workiing with told me tonight that the publisher has decided to not publish that genre any longer. 

I’m disappointed.  I thought I was headed in the right direction this time around.  I thought I had a chance – a good chance – to actually get this book out in the world for people to read. 

While this downswing has certainly bummed me out, I’m not letting it stop me.  I am in the process of adding information and rewriting parts of it.  Once I’m through that I’m going to hit the market place and find a niche for this book.  All anybody can do is say no… and all that does is make me dig in my heals and work harder…Hopefully my stubbornness and determination will pay off…

  1. One thing I have come to know by working with Hecate, is that just because things are not easy, it doesn't mean that you aren't meant to do it. I was positive that the Goddess wanted me to be right where I am sitting at this very moment, yet it seemed that I was facing obstacles every inch of the way. So I began to reconsider… I let go (everyone has to determine for themselves exactly what "letting go" means for them, not try to arrange everything like you think it should be arranged, but just let go and go with the flow and see how things all end up. If you can sustain that for any length of time, and just watch the magick happen (hard to do, you will be rewarded in ways you never thought possible.

    You have a feeling about this book and people are supposed to read it, but the Goddess won't let it go, because it is so important, until it is exactly right. I truly believe you are on a mission with this article, so hang in there… when the time is right, it will take wings in a way that will make you have to pinch yourself.

  2. Thank you. I know I just need to keep plugging away at it. It is hard to be disappointed time and again but at the same time it just makes me more determined. I believe in the project. I believe in the artist helping me. I believe it will help people. I'm not quitting just because I've heard another sorry but no. Pig headed I guess… 🙂
