My Badge of Honor

I'm wearing my first rejection as a badge of honor. I feel like I've passed through a doorway that was previously closed to me.

I have choices now. I choose to do a commercialized rewrite of my story and to bring it up to par with the expectations of a YA novel. More at stake, more romance, more conflict, more competition, just more. I have a lot of personal experiences to pull from, come to think of it. :-)

It's a whole new ballgame, baby!


  1. Sorry about the rejection, but you're right-- it's definitely a badge of honor! It means you were brave enough to put your work out there, and that's awesome. Good luck with your rewrite, I hope it goes well!

  2. My mind is swirling with potentially great ideas. Hopefully, I'll settle on a plan by Monday and can start typing. :-)


Would love to read and respond to your comments, so please post! I blog Monday through Saturday, mostly as a night-owl. Please remember to type the validation word on the screen that pops up after you comment--my professional code of business conduct contract and code of ethics necessitates that I moderate comments on public social media, so there will be a short delay in viewing your comment online.
