I don’t break #TheRunningWriter

I don’t break

****

A friend of mine turned me onto this song, Made For This, by Carrollton

It’s a great song with some pretty impactful words. My favorite part is:

I don’t give up, I won’t back down

Goodbye worries, no time to doubt

I feel the power, I won’t be afraid

Fear won’t stop me, I don’t break

Pretty awesome, huh? Besides marriage, trail running and writing are two of my biggest passions. #TheRunningWriter was created because of these two passions, and some days I do feel like I was made for this. That this is my calling.

But when I got my first rejections from agents and publishers, I doubted. When I got my first DNF (Did Not Finish) in a race, I doubted.

And when I got my first publishing contract, I was like YES! I knew I was meant to publish.

Then it fell through.

I could have quit. Oh but then I got an agent. Yes. I WAS made for this after all.

Then she bailed—in a pretty epic fashion I might add.

There have been, and will be, plenty of roller coaster ups and downs on this publishing journey; from bad reviews to great ones, from rejections to acceptances, from publishing contracts and a publishing contract drought.

But here’s what I have to say to that:

I don’t give up, I won’t back down

Goodbye worries, no time to doubt

I feel the power, I won’t be afraid

Fear won’t stop me, I don’t break

How about you? Will you say that in the face of your ups and downs?

Let’s do this!!
