It seems like it has been a long holiday. I spent my time sending emails to potential agents with either a rejection or no response. It takes a toll sometimes, wondering if it is worth trying to achieve the ultimate goal. People in my life keep telling me to not give up, keep going; even the most successful authors were rejected before they made it. I think about it everyday. The next step in the journey is to contact publishers. I am trying to be patient, look ahead at what might happen; I'll tell you it is very hard. I look around at my everyday life and realize what I want most is to be a successful author. Some call it a pipe dream; like winning the lottery. I say, how are you going to win if you don't play the game?
