Ideas from dreams follow me into warm sunny days or the quiet of falling snow. What ifs feed a vivid imagination. Even miss-typed phrases may lead to an aha moment. Brain storming sessions standing in windy, dark parking lots with fellow writers release thoughts that pry at the corners of my mind, grasping for purchase. Sometimes the ideas pursue me,...more

Is there such a thing as a 'good' rejection letter? Well, no. They always cause your heart to drop and self doubts about your writing to rear up, at least for me.
