My Own Promise
Posted 06-03-2012 at 02:29 PM by Candis Brooks
I promised myself when I joined this site that I would take everything at face value, that I wouldn't become discouraged, and I wouldn't let anyone make me believe I'm not good enough. This is the pinky promise I made myself. I recieved a lot of negative comments, and I was made to feel like the poster child for all "novice" on this site. It was very discouraging. However, I also recieved several PMs that were very encouraging, and I was given some positive crit that I found helpful. So to those who were open to help I say thank you! I can't say it enough. I believe those of you who were encouraging are the reason I found the courage to submit to other publishers. Yesterday I recieved a letter in the mail saying that one of the pieces I submitted was being published in a book. The book is set to be released in August! I'm super excited. The irony is my piece is titled "Pinky Promise". So to the other "novice" here, I say: Keep your head up. Never quit and believe in yourself even if others do not. Your words are of value to someone, even if not to everyone! Best wishes to all.
