Writing 2012

I wrote this in January of this year but waited to post it until I felt ready to devote sufficient time to blogging.  Since then little has changed.  2013 is looking a lot like 2012.  So I thought I would go ahead and post now.

Writing 2012

In 2012 I had one article accepted for publication.

4 book proposals rejected. 4 articles rejected. May not sound like a lot but given that it takes months before you hear back on a submission and the places I sent to do not accept multiple submissions, it’s a long slow process just to get a rejection.

One query letter still waiting for a response. Two articles waiting for a response and one pamphlet.

One book manuscript still under consideration since November of 2011. Did I say it’s a long slow process?

I almost had an agent only to have him retire. However on the plus side he is helping me get to the point of getting an agent.

I didn’t know whether to be encouraged or discouraged when I read about one writer who went through three agents before getting a book published.

Such is the life of a writer.
