LOL. All you need is one ... da da da da da, all you need is one ... da da da da da ... all you need is one, one. One is all you need ;)
Oh man, Jess! Now I'm going to have the tune stuck in my head all day ;-)~JD
I keep holding on to that idea. Recently, Mary from Kidlit had a post on what to do if you get multiple offers. I snorted.
I'm holding on to the one yes idea. :)
Sounds like a good mantra :) I saw a teaser for this on Twitter - I'll pop on over & check it out.
No kidding, Justine. I say we get revenge on Jess for messing with our heads. ;)One. Sounds good to me. Now to figure out who that one will be. Hmmm.
It only takes one yes... got it!Checking out Sara's blog now!
I'm singing the Broadway musical."One. Singular sensation..."
Checking it out now but thanks ahead of time for the great encouragement!!! :-)
I'm singing it, too, Jennie. I'm still holding out for that one. Not the singular sensation, but the yes. Come to think of it, the yes might provide a singular sensation. Will be nice to find out someday. :-)
Wow, I just said this to myself yesterday! :)
Only takes one yes. Only takes one yes. Only takes one yes. *repeats until blue in the face*
My new mantra....no really!
Love it! Just need one agent to say yes, one editor to say yes, and one reader to say yes...oh wait, that last one isn't going to work. haha Thanks for the morning inspiration!
But the no's may be even more important.
So true - you can never give up because it really doesn't matter how many rejections you get, it's all about that one yes.
189 Queries? Holy cow-I honestly didn't know there were that many agents out there. You are such an inspiration to aspiring writers (like me). Thanks for posting your stats - you rock! :)
Now I have the tune stuck in my head haha. Keep holding out for that 1, wow 189? Thats true dedication.
GREAT ONE! Used to tell that to myself all the time when I was single :)
So true! Thank you so much for the guest post, and for being willing to share your stats with us. You are an inspiration!! :-)
