Time to Blog--Kurt Chambers
Yes, this really is me writing a blog...lol...I have to apologise to my readers for not posting anything for like forever! Life went insane for a while again, you know how it goes. So, here I am just to ramble on for a bit about, well, nothing really...lol...I've had some ups and downs. As many of you know, I'm back in the submission game again. With the start of a new year, I was very excited to be back in the game again after spending all of last year writing my new novel, Unknown Reality. It won't be ready for submission for a while, but I'm submitting Truth Teller while I'm bringing it up to scratch. As the month of January has drawn to a close, I have three rejection letters under my belt. The things us poor writers have to endure. Not to worry, though, Rome wasn't built in a day, right?
These last couple of weeks haven't been that great for me. As well as being rejected, family members have been ill, and my car died last week and cost me a small fortune to get back on the road amongst other things. On the plus side, I'm healthy, I have a job, and some of the best friends in the whole wide world :) That's a big plus! Talking of friends, my dear friend, Tamara, sent me a signed copy of her novel this week, Perilous. That was awesome! I remember when Tamara joined our critic forum at the Young Adult Novel Workshop, and now I have her book sitting on my bedside cabinet. That made my week. It's also massively encouraging and an inspiration for all the other members of the forum to show that what seems to be an impossible task sometimes, is in fact within reach for all of us. Well done, Tamara! I'm so proud of you, girl. :)
The roller coaster of life continues as we enter February. For me, being a builder, February is not a month I normally look forward to as it's the coldest month of the year. But I'm expecting great things from this year. Spring is just around he corner, and things are about to bloom. I'm still excited to find out what surprises this year has in store for me. Let's hope it's good things! :D
