Julie's Quest

Hello, and welcome to my blog. My blog is about the trials and tribulations of writing, where we celebrate successes and commiserate our near misses. We tell it like it is here and will do our very best to help you on the road to being published and pick you up after the rejections (they will come!) Whether you are a professional or amateur writer you will find something useful here.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts and will visit again soon.

Happy Writing

Take some P.R.I.D.E in your work

P = Persistence: you need it by the bucket load.
R = Resilience: trying to get published is not for the faint hearted - you have to learn to bounce back from all of those rejections!
I = Imagination: this will get you a long way both in your creativity and for imagining that feeling when you hold your published work in  your hands.
D = determination: you have to want to keep going on and on and on and on - think like a toddler learning to walk: get your balance, strengthen your legs then launch yourself off, one step at a time.
E = Energy: you need more than the national grid in this game! But it's a good excuse to eat chocolate and biscuits  -  you have to keep your strength up!

Happy writing!
