From rejection to the new year.

Happy New year, and to all a Good Health!

We (French people) always wish a good health as well as a good year because what is more important than health, right?

2015 ended on a small sour note after my short Chrononauts story did NOT win the Millarworld Talent Hunt. Here it is for your reading pleasure: The Dating Game. WARNING: it’s awesome.

Rejection is hard. It is demoralizing but I keep moving forward. I don’t know who said it but I read this very cool quote the other day: “Success is going from one failure to another without losing your enthusiasm.” ┬áDamn I ‘m successful!

Today, I sent in my submission to Top Cow Productions for their yearly Talent Hunt. By submitting before January 15th, I should get a one paragraph feedback sometimes before February 15th and am I looking forward to that. Just to get some professional feedback will be awesome in and of itself.

I am still waiting to hear back from 2000 AD on my Futureshocks submission. I send them emails via their sites and even asked on their twitter feed but I am not getting any answer as to whether or not it has been rejected. I just want to know so that I can send the next one, you know. It has been over two months after all. I also hope it did not get lost in the mail. Makes me wonder, is no news TRULY good news?

Lastly, I just want to share a wonderful article about the importance of PREMISE by Michael Tabb. I really wish I would have read this earlier. It outlines some of the fundamental needed to write a good story and to writer’s block entirely. I just cannot stress how important this article is.

That is it for this week. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday time and wish you, once more, a Happy and Healthy New Year.
