Never Quit

On this day November 29, 2011, It has been; roughly: 3 years, 4 months, 20 days, I can only guess the hours, minutes, seconds ~

that I received a contract from a Publisher for a book I had written.

I have to admit, I felt like I had been forgotten. Then I got a itsy bitsy disheartened.

A lil discouraged.

Ok…….

DEVASTATED!

I know.  I know.  If I quit, wouldn’t that just make me a snit?

And so, I thought about it for a moment….

I don’t want to be a snit. Snitty is so, so snotty!

So, I wrote this post to let ya’ll know ~ all my dedicated followers ~ now in the high numbers of 00000000,000000,003, because I know yall care and want to see me get published, that I have made up my mind and….

I’m not gonna give up!!!

Or quit.

Or pull all my hair out (all 11 of them.)

I even found this sweet lil poem for yall.

ok ~ and for me.

 

Don’t Quit

 

When things go wrong, as they

sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,

Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

 

Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about,

When he might have won had he stuck it out;

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–

You may succeed with another blow.

 

Often the goal is nearer than,

It seems to a faint and faltering man,

Often the struggler has given up,

When he might have captured the victor’s cup,

And he learned too late when the night slipped down,

How close he was to the golden crown.

 

Success is failure turned inside out–

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,

And you never can tell how close you are,

It may be near when it seems so far,

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–

It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Feeling better about any lil setbacks you may be going through??

I especially felt better when I finished this post, saved it in my drafts and within an hour received an e mail from my editor at Oak Tara Publishers.
