Encouragement

I may have posted this quote before, but you don't mind.

I figured that with all of Jaden's informative lectures, you may be overwhelmed with the enormity of the publishing-project you are about to undertake, and you might need a little bit of encouragement.

From Barbara Kingsolver (You know her as the writer that wrote The Poisonwood Bible, The Bean Trees, Pigs in Heaven, and Vegetable,Animal,Miracle, to name a few):


"This manuscript of yours that has just come back from another editor is a precious package. Don't consider it rejected. Consider that you've addressed it 'to the editor who can appreciate my work' and it has simply come back stamped 'Not at this address'. Just keep looking for the right address."




This picture has nothing to do with the above, I just liked it.

That is a really nice quotation! It makes one a little bit happier.

By the way: check out a picture I made of C.P. on my blog...

Thanks a lot :P
Feel free to link or copy, it's not like it's a piece of art or anything - but it was kind of fun to do...
