Brief Humor & Check-Ins

For Fellow Authors Dealing with Rejection (Humor)

I found the perfect remedy for those who (like myself at the moment) continue collecting rejection letters for their manuscripts.

Watch the following short video while roasting a marshmallow over your burning letters. Repeat as needed. Enjoy. 🙂

Writing Updates: Happy Memorial Day

Some brief writing updates for those fellow happy writers, and some links to opportunities:

• I recently had a poem accepted for a Horror Writer’s Association (HWA) anthology. The anthology is for Mental Health Awareness and publications should be sometime in June. Feel free to check out their website for opportunities. Some contests are open to non-members and are free to enter.

• I recently submitted an Author Spotlight interview to Fae Corps Inc. If my answers are accepted, my interview should be posted on there sometime soon. As well, I will be submitting a short story to their horror Call for Submissions anthology. Should prove to be a spooky time–feel free to check out the opportunity yourself. A big thanks to Andrew again for sharing this opportunity.

• Lastly, several weeks ago I received a full manuscript request for my second novel, GOTD. Please keep your fingers, toes, nose, and elbows crossed for me. I am hoping to go the traditional route this time. A link to a teaser of my novel is on my webpage.

Have a Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone. I will probably be in the basement this evening, comforting my dog against the fireworks people will insist on shooting until two in the morning. Ka-boom! Happy writing–let’s keep encouraging one another on this journey. Tara.

Music to Relax & Write to: The Elves

I came across this YouTube video today and wanted to pass it along. Great to play in the background as you’re doing Saturday morning chores, projects, or writing the next great classic piece of literature.

Take care.
