We all have different writing numbers. Here are some of mine....
Six years of serious application (writing at least 4 times/week....learning....submitting...really, really trying). Many more years ahead, I hope.
Five partially finished manuscripts (anywhere from 25-100 pages written)
Three completed novels (the first one was is horribly embarrassing, but I'm still counting it)
Seven conferences (these are the best!!!)
Nine thousand dollars in conference/hotel/airline fees (what??? *double checks math* Holy Cow! that number is correct. Ouch. Please, Lord, don't let my husband look at today's post....)
Countless rejections (honestly, I wish I would have saved every single one instead of ripping them to tiny bits and throwing them away. My frustration sometimes gets the better of me.)
One agent *eyes left sidebar*
