Words to Live By

I'll write more for my weekly post, but this quote is perfect today:

"Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat. " 

~F. Scott Fitzgerald

Everyone have a great weekend.


  1. Jeannie, I am sorry. It is small consolation (if any at all) but you have accomplished so much more already than others who "say" they are writers yet never finish, never submit, never hear the words "send me a partial", never have reason to hope. You are a great writer, and it is taking a bit more time for your words to find the right house, the right agent, the right editor - to find the best home for them. But you will! Of that, I am certain.

  2. Thanks. That means a lot to me. <3

  3. This is a very important thing for all of us to remember. Thanks for a timely reminder. :)

  4. Wise words for us all to remember.


    And keep your chin up.

  5. Oh how I needed this quote today. Thank you.

  6. Linda, Abby--There are so many things that can drag us down in the publishing business, it's something to remember.

    Julie, I hope everything is okay. I felt pretty bad on Friday, but I'm getting better. I hope things improve for you.
