Writing Tips by Rachelle
I walked a long road paved with rejections, self-doubt, and hard work before my first novel was published in 2010. I was excited and in wonder when that novel won a special award. Did they just call my name?
I was able to attend the League of Utah Writers Awards banquet and I won this beautiful award for my book WRONG NUMBER.
It is the Olive Woolley Burt Award for Outstanding Book of the Year. WRONG NUMBER was also awarded a first prize Golden Quill award in adult fiction.
Successes like that help me feel like writing today and I’m going to sweep away the worry and self-doubt and type as fast as I can on my new novel. And when the next rejection comes in or I’m not sure how my character will overcome her latest problem, I’m going to stare at that award and then keep writing!
I want you to do the same–get rid of those negative worries that are keeping you from reaching for your dream and go for it!
