This Week in the Writing World...June 24

by Brooke Favero

This week, Rachelle Gardner answered the question: Why is Publishing So Slow? I get it. I read the words, I understand them, but I still want to rip hair out of my head. My query is still sitting with two (I would love either one of them) agents. They both list 6-8 weeks for response time. I'm in week 6. Waiting is my favorite...my brutal agonizing favorite. Thankfully the blogs inspire me.

Having uninterrupted time to create and write has been the biggest inspiration this week. I know it won't be like this all the time, but I'll take it when I get it!

This week I was inspired by Kerrie Flanagan who has a dream, by Og Mandino who wrote the books about realizing your dreams, and the dancers on "So You Think You Can Dance" who suffer physical pain and emotional stress as they try to attain their dreams.

Wow Pat. I am touched--really.
