If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

17/20 rejections and misc.

Hello everyone!

First, if you are looking for my Poetry schmoetry blogfest poem click here.

I received rejection number 17 last Friday. I'm so very close to my 20 rejection goal! Then I'll be making my collage. I've posted the rejection in my rejection tab if you want to look at it.
I have one more out in submission. Now I have to do some revisions to submit more stories.


 I had a blast at the fair yesterday with my girls. We spent 7 hours riding rides and man was I tired last night but I slept amazingly well.


 Don't forget to sign up for my Inspiration blogfest- it is coming next week and I'm super excited to see everyone's prompts! I know you all will come up with some great inspiration to write from!

Happy writing!

If you hit twenty, you'll need to set a new goal.

Rejections...I've lost count. Coincidentally that is what my latest post is about: handling rejections...

I'm excited about your blogfest...am thinking of something inspiring :D

Don't give up, Summer! I am past 20 rejections, but I think that's great you actually enjoy them.

Best of luck!

Always,
Lindsey

I haven't been to the fair in years. I keep meaning to go to the Orange Show, but never get the chance. Glad you had fun!

What a great way to keep a cheery countenance in the face of rejection!

LTM said...

what a healthy approach to the inevitable rejections! And ooo... I can't wait to see my babies. They're visiting the grandparents while we move in and it's been TOO LONG. :p

Have a great weekend~ <3

The fair sounds fun. We'll be going to one in a couple of weeks.

Great outlook on the process of getting published. Rejection happens.

Keep going!
And I haven't gone to the fair in years.

Old Kitty said...

I LOVE your attitude with your rejection letters. One must ALWAYS have a sense of humor.

Jules said...

LOL, I love the collage concept. That would make a great blog background. :) Our fair started today but I'm going to hold out for the State one. Next week will be my crunch time on my project, so maybe I'll be a last minute sign up. :)

Those rejections aren't based on your writing. All you have to do is find one person who will actually read it and see it for what it is. Keep at it, sweet faerie.

I love your attitude toward rejection letters--setting a goal seems like a great way of building toward something, even while being rejected.

Glad to hear you had a good time at the fair!

Heya, I've seen you like to post links to blogfests. I'll be hosting the Sparkfest August 22-26. The theme is posting about authors/books who have influenced/inspired you :)

Happy Weekend!

Yay that you're submitting! I'm way past 20. WAnt some of mine? Glad you had fun at the fair. Looking forward to your fest next week. :D

Even though you have another rejection, you are submitting. You have to submit to be published, so don't ever give up!

What if you never get anymore rejections?!?! What will you do then?

Nas Dean said...

I hope you stop getting R's and start getting CALLS!!!

Michelle Fayard said...

I have some news I hope will sweeten the rejection sting; you're the winner of the book giveaway contest for Ann Best's memoir In the Mirror. Congratulations! When you have a moment, could you please send your mailing address to mefayard(at)yahoo(dot)com? I'll get it over to Ann, who will be sending the book to you.

Wishing you a great day,

Michelle
