My nerves back since I just looked at submission guidelines and this is my first time attempting to get something published in a big market.  It doesn't help that the last time I was published, I was 8 or 9.

I bet you get back on a Horse when you fall off.  So look on writing the same way.  Some horses/books can be more cantankerous or scary than others.  But if you're a true rider/writer you just have to get back on.

Go for it.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Hey Corey

How do you manage to write multiple books?  I find I have to concentrate on one at a time.  Do you have a recipe for this success as I want to write another book soon but I am afraid it might distract from my concentration on another book of a completely different genre.

I need to stop comparing my work with some else's, especially someone who has gotten more hours of practice than me. :P

...I think it is possible for anyone to "stand out", but comparing oneself's "inferiority" with another's "superiorty" (quotes have subjective meanings, lol) is preposterous and a waste of time.

Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us - Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice)

At the moment, about 850 more words to reach my NaNo quota for the day. Preferably put into sentences that make sense and form paragraphs that work into my plotline.8)
