For this week’s journal challenge post, I’m sharing a page from my own journal.
Here’s a page from my personal journal from Feb-March 2015.
Just finally got my novel back my editors after one very long year of waiting – it’s finally over!
After all the hassle I’ve been through with these lousy editors and all the money I’ve spent I finally have my book back and the editing isn’t great. The formatter I hired to format my novel for Kindle has corrupted my files and now I’ve got to start all over again. I feel like just giving up now and not bothering to publish the book! I’ve wasted so much time and money!
That journal entry is from almost two years ago and I still read it sometimes to remind myself that I should never give up. Yes, I had rough road into publication, but I also learnt some valuable lessons from it about publishing and about myself.
And I never will give up!
