I've been thinking this week about this writing journey I've been on. I'm quite amazed, actually, as I look back over the past two and half years at how many "firsts" I have experienced. Just for fun, I thought I'd post a "Friday Five" list.
1. I attended a writer's conference.
2. I submitted a query letter.
3. I pitched to an agent.
4. I got a rejection letter.
5. I joined a critique group.
Talk about being out of my comfort zone! The great thing, however, is that the more I do these things, the more comfortable I get doing them, and the more I learn. As Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu said, "The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." I'd say I've taken a few steps.
