Chasing my crazy dream in the writing world…

W.O.W. Series August 25, 2012




Rejection sucks – we all know it.


So with that in mind, I wanted to bring something to my blog that shows aspiring writers that many well-known authors had their share of form “no thank yous” and still pushed on through.  It might have not happened with their second, or even third manuscript but eventually they wrote “the one” that garnered them an agent.


From that idea the W.O.W. –  Writer Odyssey Wednesday – was born.  It began as merely an interview series, but has become so much more in a short time.  Each author’s story is a lesson in perseverance and commitment to the craft, and honestly, every time I read a new author’s journey, I am inspired to keep writing all over again.


These writers have been kind enough to share their story so far…
