Happy Wednesday! It's been an eventful week in the writing community. Today, I'm posting a 'double feature', as I've stumbled upon two very different stories every writer dreams of.
First, congratulations to Wendy Sparrow who just announced her representation with Sarah Yake of the Frances Collin Literary Agency. She has graduated from the emotional stage of querying and begins the next phase of her journey toward publication. Cheers to you, Wendy!
"For those that don't know, this has been a long two and a half years for me, and I just wanted to give up on traditional publishing
just a month ago.
I should know by now how important the journey is, though...."
Her words deliver a powerful message. Not only are they aligned with the emotions every writer wrestles, they reiterate the importance of perseverance. I've always believed the best news arrives at the time it is intended; Wendy's story reaffirms that philosophy, and also reminds us the journey is an experience in itself.
In her blogger profile, Wendy describes herself as a professional insomniac and hopeful writer. It looks as though she is now one giant step closer to removing the word 'hopeful.'
To join Wendy on the rest of her publication journey, visit her blog or follow her on twitter.
