Thank you so much Lou. I appreciate the support, and you go get 'em!
Louisa, this is your year! Well done! I'm happy for you. Thanks for the reminder that persistence pays. I needed to hear that this week. Louella Nelson

Thanks Jeff. Definitely have to listen to those instincts sometimes!
you're following your heart … and your instincts.
Doin' just fine, too.
Thanks so much, Jina. I appreciate the cheers & support!
Wonderful news, Louisa! Congrats on a job well done. You are proof of that old showbiz adage: No one fails in show business; they just give up.
Keep going!! You are an inspiration to us all.
Candy, I once had a college student tell me he didn't want to apply for an internship because he may be rejected. That comment really made an impression on me. But if you don't apply, you don't ever have a chance for acceptance … right?
There is that caveat though — there are only those few who don't submit but are still "found" some way.
Now, they are the *lucky* ones!
Rejection sucks. No matter how hard you try to be objective, it's personal. Someone told me recently it takes courage to hit submit.*wink* Determination, hard work and a lot of courage — you have to make your own luck.
Sometimes it's definitely hard to keep writing/working, especially when you've submitted something and are waiting to hear back. One reason why I like short stories, because it changes the pace and keeps that writing-need going.
My mother-in-law always said that you need to believe you're going to win in order to. One of those affirmation people.
So *feel* it.
Thanks for stopping by Saranna. And, hey: I LIKE you!
GO YOU! That's awesome.
That's something I detest about the career path we've chosen. From submitting to releases, I feel like I'm asking people to please like me. Yeah, no. That's not me at all. I'm more of a take it or get out of my face kind of person. But that doesn't work in this business. You have to follow up, you have to be visible, you have to keep submitting, keep releasing, keep working and keep hoping.Even when you're not feeling lucky at all. 🙂
