So I had a nudge from the Force tonight to go and write a query letter for a children's story that I wrote a while ago and just never seemed to get around to writing the letter for. I know that its like a one in a million chance that it will be taken interest in by the first agent that I sent it to, but something just felt right about doing it right now. Who am I to ignore such a feeling? Anyway even if it isn't accepted now, at least i took the first step. Who knows where it will lead? Not me. Lol

If I didn't follow them...well not only would I be wasting a possible opportunity, but I would be ignoring The Force....and my instinct tells me that ignoring a nudge from the Force could lead to disaster.lol

Look at Dr. Seuss -- 20 to 40 rejections before BOOM... that cat and his hat made some history. Then again, others 'get it' on their first submission. However, if you never submit -- how will you ever know 'how it all turned out'? Go for it. Save yourself some 'Force-full' nudges.
:P

life is very complacated. Don't worry abut finding the answers because when you find the answers life changes the questions


OK the non coincidental coincidence of my finding this now aside. Lol. I think that this is a really good quote. If I may reference "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" for a moment... In the story a group of pandimensional beings built a giant supercomputer to calculate the ultimate answer to life the universe and everything. Ten million years later the two pandimensional beings went back....everyone was there having a huge party thinking that they were about to discover THE secret to the universe. Deep thought(the supercomputer) told them that she had an answer but they weren't going to like it.. The answer was 42....everyone was confused... Deep thought explained that it would have been easier if she knew the actual question. And the pan dimensional beings said" but its The Question, to life the universe and everything!" Deep thought said....but that is not a question.... And deep thought was right. If we are always looking for the answer we can't find the question..

To anyone who is wondering where I disappeared to this time. I haven't forgotten about you all. It's the middle of end of the year testing. My schedule has been sooo crazy recently with EOCs that I haven't even had time to keep up with my regular schoolwork lol. But I'll be back as soon as testing finishes.

I'll be ...

Recalled to life!
