You'd think that being laid up with a broken ankle would have been good incentive to get writing. Alas, it was more of a distraction than motivation. Yes, I had lots of on-my-caboose time in which to write, just couldn't get my mojo going. And today I heard from my agent with yet another rejection of my pirate romance. Sigh... After discussion with her, I've decided to set that story aside and focus on something else for a while. My skin just isn't quite as thick as it used to be and this rejection really stung. But I'm a big girl and will just have to figure out how to soldier on.
One way I'm going to try to combat my emotional downturn is by returning to my writing group, Pikes Peak Romance Writers. I didn't attend many meetings in 2008 for various reasons, but I'm going to make a real effort to reconnect with these other writers. Maybe some of their enthusiasm will rub off on me.
Happy New Year!
