Sometimes it takes reminders from others to nudge us along during times of low motivation.
Sometimes rejection can get us down.
Sometimes the non-writers in our lives can roll their eyes when we say we need to check our blog or twitter account. And sometimes when they say it's a waste of time, we wonder if they're right.
Well, recently I read two blog posts within minutes of each other that reassured me that my gut instinct was right. (See here and here. Both Shelley Waters @ Is It Hot In Here or Is It This Book? and Roni Loren @ Fiction Groupie (during a guest post @ Ashley March's blog) blogged that they received agents, not only because they are wonderful writers, but also because they had referrals from blogging/tweeting friends.)
I'm NOT wasting my time writing. AND I'm not wasting my time building a platform and making AMAZING connections with fellow aspiring and published authors who blog and/or tweet.
And neither are you.
Please continue to share your success stories with me.
