So somewhere out there, in the world of aspiring Romance novelists, is a very, very, happy person. Congratulations to you, mystery winner!
Now, in case you are one of the entrants of SYTYCW who didn’t get THE call today and you’re feeling kind of down, I’m hoping this will help motivate and inspire you, as much as it does me.

I think sometimes we can be hard on ourselves when we don’t achieve our goals in X amount of time. Sometimes, we don’t give ourselves credit for all the effort, time, and sacrifice we put towards getting published. Many of us have jobs, kids, ‘lives’, and we use up almost all our free time pursuing publication. It’s so easy to get discouraged. It’s so easy to think ‘it’ will never happen. But as long as you keep writing, it will. How do you know that the next manuscript you send out there won’t be the one? If you quit, you’ll never know.
That’s about it for motivation, sorry, I gotta get writing!
Oh, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
