This video doesn't really have anything to do with anything, but I enjoy this song: Find a Way, by A Tribe Called Quest, from their final album, The Love Movement.
You don't have to listen to it if you don't want to.
Last week, my friend, Renae Mercado, asked her readers how they deal with rejection.
Here's what I had to say:
Now I realize that's a bit idyllic, I mean rejection will always hurt, always sting a bit like freezing air biting against the mucus membrane of your nostrils in the morning, but I'm a Pisces. I can dream.
I vote we should start a movement. We should start calling rejection subjection instead. I just got subjectively subjected to a subjection.
In other news: my follower project experiment worked. Since last Tuesday I've gained 49 new followers. Alex and I are planning a blog fest to help it work for all of you as well. Elana may also get involved. We haven't figured out anything official yet, but I will keep you posted.
In further other news: I'll be critiquing two interesting queries on the blog the rest of the week. So be sure to come back. You might learn something. Or, even better, you might teach me something.
In final news: please visit my friend Michael Gettel-Gilmartin's Middle Grade Mafioso blog this morning. He's got a great interview up.
