FRIDAY STIR FRY - Random Thoughts

Well, believe it or not, I'm way behind on NaNo as you can see from my miserable word counter. Oh well.

Received another rejection this week for BTH. Up to ten now, I think. I've lost count and interest. I'm really tired of the whole process. Sending the query or whatever the heck they want and then waiting, waiting and waiting. Only to get turned down. Considering putting it on Kindle. If I could only have a week off work so I could do a cover and format it and all that good stuff. I don't think two days on the weekend will be enough. Plus I don't have a clue how to do a cover. There are peeps who have offered to help. We'll see.

Work is kicking my butt (which is my excuse for my pitiful word count). A person in our department is leaving and the three of us that are left are trying to divide her work up between us. My old brain is having to learn new stuff. But, MAYBE, if they don't need to hire somebody, we can get a raise when she leaves. Not sure I'm going to survive to see that.

On a brighter note, I'm loving my new car. Need to take a road trip soon.

Which brings me to my question of the week. Where do you like to go on a one day road trip?

It's A Wide Open Road 2 2


  1. 8,000 words in 15 days is fantastic! Stop telling yourself otherwise.

    When I lived in Colorado, my favorite day trip was hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. Now it's the Buffalo River area in Arkansas.

    1. Thanks for the encouragement Sharon. I love the Buffalo River.

  2. I wouldn't get discouraged about the number of rejections just yet. Ten is really not that many. I heard a story about a guy who would paper his wall with rejection notices. He's now an author with several published novels to his credit. Hang in there!

  3. I know what you say is true, Chuck. Rejection is part of the process. Just not sure how much more of this 'process' I want to put myself through.
