Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words really can mess up my confidence.

I just wanted to write this quick entry to say that I will be actively adding onto this blog again.  It has been a few weeks since I last posted something.  In one of those blog entries, I talk about how a not-so-nice editor made me feel pretty shitty.  I thought I would easily dust my shoulders off and see his statements as words from a man who just hasn’t had any ass in awhile, all the while writing and creating masterpieces to shove into his face.  Unfortunately, his words affected me more than I realized, and I haven’t felt good about writing for a bit.  I am trying to get over that…I have been submitting pieces to websites and trying to get writing gigs here and there so I can practice my writing, and I have also written a children’s story for my nephew about the beautiful birds of Australia.  In my heart of hearts, I really know that this is what I want, and I can’t let any bitter editor deter me.  So, I will be adding more information to this blog, including the various stepping stones I have gone through and will be going through, both positive and negative.  But that will be for tomorrow…I am tired from a combination of jetlag and too many nights of pretending I am 21 again.  Until soon…
