Yes, that's me as a blond, curly-haired boy. But I digress.
If I ever FINALLY make it in the publishing biz, I'm going to put my big girl britches on and finally get a tattoo. And this is what it would look like:
This is an image of my zodiac sign, Taurus (yes, my b-day just passed. You may start sending your belated gifts now). Everyone always jokes and says that they knew I was a Taurus because I'm so stubborn. Being that I'm a counselor, I know how to put a positive spin on things. So instead of saying "stubborn," I'm going to say the Taurus symbol represents persistence.
And when you think about it, don't you need persistence to make it in the pub industry? I've had my fair share of rejections already. Some bring me close to tears; some make me want to punch a hole in the wall. But you know what? I keep going. No matter how puffy my eyes get or how much my knuckles sting. I LOVE writing. And I'll keep doing it regardless if I get published or not. But that tattoo sure does look pretty. Let's hope I get good news one day! :)
