Writers' Guild

A community for writers of all genres to hone our craft, with monthly exercises, challenges, and collaborative writing. Open to anyone who enjoys writing!


Cafe Random, the place for random chat!

 
Random thought for today. This is one of my favorite quotes. It will become more evident why when you remember I am an accountant.

"Not everything that counts can be counted; and not everything that can be counted, counts." (Einstein)

Woo! Finally got my first rejection letter. After three months of waiting.

Congratulations. That has to mean something. Did they make any suggestions/recommendations or just send it back with a form letter?

Send it out to the next one.

Sorry once again, sometimes I have the attention span of a
