I just wish it wasn't working out this way. You should have seen me when I finished the first draft of Smashing. I was so certain and excited about it. I loved it (still do), and I just knew it was my ticket to being a published author.
Except that it doesn't seem that it is working out that way.
I have another project that I believe is really good, and I'll move forward with that one. I am determined that I will be published sometime before I leave this world. No, I never thought it would take this long, but I guess that's just part of my journey. I remain committed to my chosen career field and will never give up. Right now, however, I've just got to try another tactic.
