Fangirl squee!

Standard

In my quest to surround myself with people who share my love of writing I am following a number of writers, publishers and agents on Twitter. I am linking with writers and authors wherever and whenever I can.
I have subscribed to the awesome David Hewlett’s YouTube blog. [Yes, I do mean the same David Hewlett who plays Rodney McKay in Stargate!]
He posted a vlog called ‘Written Off’ last week, which I commented on.
This week he did a follow up called ‘Rambling, Writerly Tips & Tricks’ where he responds to comments on ‘Written Off’ and so I get a mention! It is somewhere around 19mins 47seconds.

I’m having a massive fangirl squee that David Hewlett said my name on YouTube and gave me advice. Squeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
I met him at LFCC in July this year [2014] and he was charming.
Now I’m an even bigger fan!

No luck again

Well, it wasn’t third time lucky after all. Didn’t really expect it to be.
I received my third literary agent rejection.
I’m taking it on the chin and moving onward and upward.
Rejection is part of the process.
So I keep telling myself ‘maybe the next one’ knowing that realistically it will probably take 100 ‘no’ emails before I get a ‘yes’.
I believe in my characters. I’ll push on because one day the answer just might be ‘yes’ and Sweetpea will be on his way.
