Writing is filled with all kinds of highs: coming up with the perfect plot twist, nailing an amazing sentence, giving an unlikable character a tiny bit of humanity.
But there’s a special kind of high that comes when Good Things happen to your manuscript out in the world. We all know about the Bad Things that inevitably happen to every writer: rejection, bad reviews, bad timing, so it’s important to grab those Good Things and squeeze them close to you when they happen. This week, I’m grabbing some inspiration from that kind of high and tucking it away for later.
And while you’re at it, have a sundae. Because sundaes.

Yay Kip! Off to read your entry now.
Thanks, JRo! I know you’re well aware of the highs and lows and in-betweens, so I’m happy to share my sundae with you. 🙂
Loved your premise and first 250, Kip. I’m hooked and rooting for you!
Thank you, Debbie! I appreciate it!
Thank you for the sundae, YUM. And for the excerpt from your ultra-shiny (stop, it’s BLINDING me) ms. Also YUM! Good luck!!!
LOL, next time I’ll provide shades. 🙂 Thank you for the extra jolt of luck!
I’m excited that you got in! I hope you make it to the final round. I was on Team Krista last year and it was a great experience. What I loved the most was all the support from the writing community. I’m going to check out your entry now!
I know what you mean–I’m so excited to be in for just that reason. Looking forward to reading the other entries and making new friends!
Why am I all of a sudden feeling peckish? I mean, I just ate my lunch…. 😀
You’re so right about that “good vibe” rush and how it can inspire. Ride that wave as long as you can, Kip. Hopefully it will bring along with it more Good Things.
I will try to stay up as long as possible! *salutes*
Congratulations on making it into the contest! I will check out your entry and cheer from the sidelines. Best of luck!
Thank you so much!!
Yay!!! Btw, I’m a Thursday’s Child 😉
Good for you! Getting into the Writer’s Voice contest! Many you land the agent of your dreams! You go, girl.
Wow, congratulations! I loved your “when good things happen to good manuscripts” post. And you should definitely celebrate with that sundae. I would! I had a writer “high” yesterday as well finding out that my 3-week old novel was #1 on Amazon in its genre! Exciting things!! Best of luck to you!
I’m expecting you’re going to have more excuses for celebratory sundaes this year. At least, fingers and toes crossed–I’m hoping!
Highs are the highest form of inspiration 😉
