Writing Can Be Murder

My rejection goat

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 5:03 am

Everyone has writing rituals, right? Mine include using a brand new spiral notebook or legal pad every time I’m trying to get “unstuck”, using my “lucky” pen to address all submissions being mailed (Note to self: It doesn’t appear to be all that lucky) and dancing with my goat when I receive a rejection.

The goat thing is relatively new, and I don’t dance with just any old goat, I dance with the goat from The Sound of Music. Don’t be jealous, you too can get one: http://www.lighterside.com/p2p/basicSearch.do?keyword=goat

DH got it for me a couple of months ago when I cooed childishly, “I always wanted of those goats!” after seeing it in a catalog. Of course he didn’t know then that it would turn into my rejection ritual.

Trust me on this: it’s very difficult to stay depressed about a rejection after you’ve danced around the room with an animated goat, singing and yodelling, at the top of your lungs, along with Julie Andrews.
