Playing Favorites

I was thinking last night if there are others, like me, who have their dream publisher, editor,agent. Or maybe who/what would mean success to you. As a person who has written for years just because there are stories bumping around in my head – who now has decided to change into professional from hobby. I know there is a big difference between the hobby-author and the professional author. I see how inexperienced I am compared to those on Twitter. Everyone has to start some where, this is where I am starting. I know what success to me would be. That lies in the publisher. Not that I would say no if another publisher made me an offer. Also, I’ve been able to interact with agents, editors as well as publishers. Some you get the feeling you would get along with them and would enjoy working with them and others…not so much. I just wondered if other authors had ‘dream teams’ picked out. I mean it must work the other way also – agents, editors & publishers must have authors they’d love to work with too and those they didn’t want to at all…just a little rambling. So here’s to the dream…I’m still chasing you, in the end – there can be only one!

A Writer’s Life or A Pirate’s Life

A very interesting day today. I got a lot of interesting quotes of inspiration for writers. I also made another Twitter pitch which resulted in a request for more. I just wish I knew if what I write is publish quality. So hard to know, I mean, I would read it but I wrote it. So I will see how that goes. I won’t know if I don’t try. I also love when I find an agent/editor/publisher or even another writer who gives out tips for writing/editing or publishing. I’ve found a few either through Twitter/websites or blogs. Love that. Its easy to get discouraged but I would never get angry about a rejection. I’m going to keep trying. Funny enough the new WIP that I’ve been working on suddenly I don’t like the pov I’m using so changes need to be made. Also funny, I started a new WIP and was making good progress on that. Finally decided to call it a night but will work on it again tomorrow. I think that’s it for now. Don’t give up!
