You can't keep a good Gnome down!


What a horrible blogger I've been this month. I think I only posted four or five times total! I promise I will try to be a little more bloggy next month.

In my defense I have been editing. Even when I was complaining about editing I was editing. 

And you guys have proven, once again without a doubt, how freakin' amazing the blog world is by giving your unconditional support and wonderful words of wisdom.

When you're down in the dumps, way, way down, you really wonder why we do this to ourselves. Why we put so much effort into something just to get absolutely nowhere with it. 

But, some of you nailed it right on the head. The difference between being a writer and a successful writer is perseverance.

I can't give up on myself.

So, thanks for the ass kicking. I needed it.

Now, there are a bunch of blogfests coming up soon. I have some badges posted on the right if you're interested.

I get most of my info from Tara at Tara Tyler Talks and, of course, THE Ninja Captain himself, Alex J. Cavanaugh. If they don't know it's going on, it's not going on!

And don't forget Write Club has just begun! Go see DL Hammons and read some great pieces and vote for your favorites!

Awesome!

Don't forget the Insecure Writer's Support Group is tomorrow!

  3. Gnomes are hardy creatures! You keep on pushing forward. The writing community is wonderfully supportive. We're lucky in that aspect! :)

  4. Though we've missed you, there's nothing wrong with your priorities. See you tomorrow for the IWSG.

    (BTW: I left you a little something over at my place yesterday.)

  5. We all need a good swift kick now and then. Good friends don't play to your ego, they care about your success. Just sayin'

  6. I sometimes have to toe a pillow around my hind quarters for all the kicks I receive. And good luck with the editing. This has to be a top priority!

  7. I only blogged four times in July. The last time I blogged so little was when I was in Siberia for a month and had no internet access.

    Oh well. The sacrifices we make for editing.

    Best of luck with everything... definitely don't give up on yourself.

  9. Don't feel bad. I haven't been around much either. I've been busy writing and traveling. I'm glad you've been working on your edits though - awesome!

  10. The good thing about not blogging too often is it gives old gals like me a chance to catch up. So many blogs so little time. Happy IWSG, Heather!

  16. Hi, Heather! Hi, Stormy! Sometimes other commitments (like editing) can take a person away from blogging. But now you are back. : )
