Would You Like to Guest Post on Seeking the Write Life?

November is NaNoWriMo month and I'm in with skin, baby.

No, I don't talk street.  You're right. 

So... I'm planning a new series on rejections and perserverance. Since I'm going to have a busy month, and this is an issue that affects all of us, I thought it was a great chance to bring in some guest posters.

Here's what we're looking at:

Re: Rejections - what they say, how to deal with them, how we react in the midst of writer neurosis, when they're good, when they're bad... you get the picture.

Re: Perserverance - how to develop it, how to know the difference between perserverance and being stubborn, why it's important... etc.

If you've had experience with rejection in the writer life or observed the need for perserverance and you'd like to share the experience with the rest of us, along with what you learned, let me know.

Email me at with your idea (you don't have to have written it yet), links to your blog, twitter, facebook (if you have them) and a basic bio about yourself.

Posts you've written on your own blog previously are fine, as long as you don't mind me 'reprinting' them here.

That's all from me today. I look forward to hearing from you!



  1. This sounds fun! I have ideas going, but I can't email you today. Could you send me a reminder? jenniefire (at) yahoo (dot) com Thanks!

  2. Hi Aimee, I have a post that is sort of about perseverance, more about pushing through fear (which IMO is a specific type of perseverance). You can read it here:

    If you'd like to re-post it on your blog, that would be great! If you don't, no feelings will be hurt. :-)
