Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day. Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Right. Failure is the the omission of expected or required action. Falling happens. It's not getting back up and trying again that is regarded as failure:)Delete
I've yet to read a success story that doesn't start out with failure, usually multiple failures.ReplyDelete
A party? You are the most energetic person!
Make sure you visit Friday! Lots of awesome announcements and confetti throwing happening!Delete
Ooo! A party :)ReplyDelete
Lol! Today's one of those days I've thought about smashing my tea cup against the floor or diving into a huge chocolate buffet. But I think we all have those - and still don't give up ;)
So, you want me to send you some chocolate and we can indulge together!!!!!Delete
LOVE this post. Just what I needed. I've been feeling down (I am a recent college grad with no job prospects and I am also querying my novel, blegh) and this was just the post I needed to read. Keep your chin up, too, Ink!!!!ReplyDelete
You too, Rachel. It's hard, I know, but it it NECESSARY! (hugs to you)Delete
chocolate always helps.
Thanks for the encouragement!!ReplyDelete
Hiiii!!!! Alexandra! How are you?? I hope you aren't snowed in!!Delete
Yep! Gotta pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again! Chocolate helps tons.ReplyDelete
It sure is awful dusty around here...Delete
And I've opened a Chocolate Emporium:)
Oh yay! This I should be able to make, edits will hopefully be done!! Can't wait to hear/see the news! And chocolate, yummy! (We're going through our annual Cadbury Mini Egg kick right now! :-) )ReplyDelete
You are o a roll! Sometimes, though, I think editing is harder to do than the actual writing. Sometimes...Delete
I could totally help with the chocolate part... hahaReplyDelete
Get in line, girl! We're serving it up in all kinds of concoctions! Yummy, yumm!Delete
Couldn't agree more, failure to try is the only real failure. A party, what kinda party?ReplyDelete
Hi Suzanne! I'm having a blog party in honor and celebration of our new Writers Unite writing group that kicks off next week.Delete
I'm running behind, as this was suppose to already happen but it's finally gonna happen!
Party?! With grown-ups?! I'm in!ReplyDelete
Oh yay! It'll be fun to party without dinosaurs or princesses!Delete
Hey! I like dinosaurs! Is it too late to change my avatar? ;)Delete
No:) email me!Delete
Avatar? You mean I'm not actually a weird orange line with a gray arrow around it?Delete
Ok seriously guys, how do I update my avatar so I'm no longer the twisty arrow? :). I show up some places right, and then others like I do here...
*grumbles at lack of computer knowledge*
Can't wait! Last week was a MAJOR! Chocolate week for me. This week is a gym week. Hee HeeReplyDelete
Oh. The gym.Delete
I have an uncle named Jim...:)
and I have a gem necklace.
But a gym? Not so...:)
Keep dreaming, keep writing, keep taking each step each day!ReplyDelete
My dream is still bright, my writing is still improving, but my steps are getting slower:)Delete
Cry, eat chocolate, pout? Right up my alley! Great reminder, I'll try and try again until all my chocolate is gone ;)ReplyDelete
Let me know when you've eaten all your chocolate and I'll send you some. I have connections with a chocolate store.Delete
Eat chocolate and pout, I can do that! Try and try again indeed, great post!ReplyDelete
Yes, pouting. But it's good for me because every piece of advice helps. Even when it makes me cry at first. It always,Delete
