With the down economy so prominent in the news it can be easy to assume that everything in the world is wrong. There is no sense of upward mobility. No expectations of progress.
However, there are things continuing to happen to those who work hard at their craft. I'm very pleased to announce that one of my clients, Jody Hedlund, was not only a double finalist in the ACFW Genesis competition [winners will be announced at the conference in September] but also was offered representation!
There are hundreds of you reading this every week and I wanted to pause for a minute to "toot our own horns". I want you to share in the comments section a victory you've recently had in your writing. Whether you pushed past the fear of rejection and sent off a manuscript or you have something being published, let us know.
I'll start: I was named the National Writing Examiner at Examiner.com and I've already received a large number of hits, and some subscribers, after only a week. Also, I spoke to the NWOCW group this past Friday [May 22] and they had a great turnout-especially considering it was the Friday of Memorial Day weekend. [A special welcome to NWOCW readers!!]
I hope that 50 or 60 [or more] of you will come over and let us see all the success that is actually going on out there. If the article is online, link to it. We want to celebrate together.
