My Poem “Mr. Rejection” about manuscript rejections, of course :-)

Greetings, Everyone! 🙂

I’am taking the freedom to approach you today with a situation that practicaly makes us writers to cry oceans, not rivers… and it is “The Rejection of Manuscripts”…    I mean, “Yikes! How heavy is this!”  You took the chance, you enjoyed writing your manuscript, it’s your baby, and it’s ready after so many drafts and loud out readings.    You started to send your “Submissions”  to literary agents and / or  publishers, and you are waiting patiently for days, weeks, months, years… and then you finally start to get answers, and yes, it doesn’t say it, it’s not physically there, but it is hiding in there, somewhere, the word “Rejected”

I have been rejected myself, and at the beginning I was so ignorant about this situation…  I thought… “Am I Wrong?”  “Maybe I’am not good enough!” “Should I write it all over again differently?  Hell No! That’s my voice and I won’t change it!”  And there I was again, laying on my bed at nights, talking to myself,  talking to God searching for comfort, for light about it.    Then my curiosity took me to search the internet, because in my ignorance I thought I was forever and ever the rotten cherry from the yummy delicious cake! lol… and I found out that many authors , who have and had or should have the word “Greatness”  almost tattooed in their foreheads, were rejected too…  Poor publishers, I bet they banged their heads on the wall, and their descendants will do the same as well. .. probably until the end of times, just to speak.

Just to mention a few best seller authors…

Stephen King –  He explains that whenever he got a rejection, he would stick on a nail. He started submitting stories to magazines at the age of 16, but didn’t get published until he was 20… He is the man who wrote “Carrie”, people!!!

J.K. Rowling – Her first Harry Potter novel was submitted to twelve publishing houses, all which rejected the wizard boy. But a happy reader, who was the CEO’s young daughter from small London publisher named “Bloomsbury”, decided to print the book.  Note–  Bloomsbury is not small anymore! 🙂

Nicholas Sparks –  Did you know that his famous “The Notebook” was rejected 24 times???  (I’am totally in love with the book and the movie)

Margaret Mitchell –  Correct!  That amazing lady who wrote “Gone with the wind”.  I guess you didn’t know it was rejected by 38 publishers before finding the right one to believe in her and  her novel!!!

Dr. Seuss –  Yep, our lovely creator of the “Grinch” that I bet many of us watch the movie or read the book each Christmas with our families!  Pulitzer winner!   His first book  ” And to think I Saw It On Mulberry Street” was rejected 27 times!!!   He wrote such an original and creative piece, a book with a new way of writing that publishers were afraid to publish him, fearing there wouldn’t be any juvenil market for it… and look how the things turned out for him!  Just Amazing! 🙂

I advice you to search the internet and you will find out that the  list  of famous rejected writers  keeps going and going!  Can you imagine “Charles Dickens and his masterpiece  “Great Expectations”  got also rejected?  I wouldn’t in a million of years until I found it myself.

I strongly think and feel that when you really want something in life, you must put all your heart and soul into it,  doesn’t matter how many times you’ll get “Knocked out!”

I’am taking this space to thank my publisher…  Ms. Donna Quesinberry  owner, agent, and publisher of  “DonnaInk Publications”  http://www.donnaink.org/  for signing my debut book “The Composer and The Flycatcher”, and signing me as new author.   All my gratitude, respect, and admiration.

Ohh, yes, the poem…

Mr. Rejection

By Diana Arco

My dear writer

I’am here to bring you awareness,

You, who have been rejected by Mr. Rejection.

And you, who are just starting to live the adventure.

I’am here to tell you:

Don’t give up!

Please, don’t give up!

It doesn’t matter how many homes you have to send your submissions,

And Mr. Rejection following your foot steps so close,

There is always one room waiting for you,

Only if you really want to and you are sure of,

To welcome you with open arms

and make more than one dream come true.

I’am asking you to open your heart first, then to see with your eyes.

Mr. Rejection is only telling you to find your right place in this world.

“Where? Please… Where?” – You might ask…

In the literary world, of course!

“But it’s so huge!” – you might complain…

But there are enough readers for each one of us, writers.

To reach their hearts, minds, and souls within our tales.

And publishers are so aware about that,

That’s  why they keep searching and publishing us.

We depend one from another,

We are one in the infinite land of possibilities.

So, please, my dear writer

Don’t hate Mr. Rejection

Don’t get into despair because of him.

He is only helping you.

Following you like a guardian angel

To place you where you really belong.

Trust me,  my dear writer,

I walked the road with him myself.

Please stay in touch for more…

Sincerely,

Diana

Writer, who are you? – Poem –

Writer, who are you?

By Diana Arco

You are asking me who I’am.

And I’ve listened to your question carefully,

not echoing inside my head,

But into my heart and soul so tenderly.

Who I’am?  Who I’am? 

I’am not a writer,

I’am far away to be…

But I’am your writer,

Thank You for choosing me!

I’am the creator and explorer of such worlds;

The owner of my entire universe,

The fantasy and the reality that Iám  sharing with you.

I’am what you are looking for.

Your time, freedom, and space.

I’am even the reflection of your mirror,

Only when you  let me be.

I’am the one who has your attention,

the ups and downs of your actual experience, situation.

I’am what  you’ve been waiting for

For you, just, you… my dear reader.

I’am your night and day

Your shine and  fog

Your rain with its storm,

Just the colors or your true colors…. it’s your call…

I’am what it’s there and what it’s not

I’am everything you let me be for you today and until your time goes by…

I’am myself today, always, forever, and beyond…

That’s something I’am happy with

and I won’t change at all.

As long as you let me make you happy…

I know…

You are here, visiting me now.

 

 

Please, stay tuned for more.

❤ All the light, life, love, and freedom from my heart and soul!  ❤

It’s Alive!!! Alive!!!!! Fiction Character Poem.

Greetings, Everyone! 🙂

I woke up this morning with the feeling to talk to you about how I  created my characters for my upcoming book “The Composer And The Flycatcher”.   I wrote a “draft” that I had to throw it away since, unfortunatelly for me to say it, I found it very and terrible  boring.   I sounded like a walking encyclopedia myself… I’am so guilty, You know.    Then I’ve got the inspiration and decided to talk to you about this in my own way…  “Poetry”…  so here it goes, in a poem, my perceptions, feelings, situations that I went myself through to achieve my creations.

It’s Alive!  Alive!  My fiction Character – Poem.

By Diana Arco.

I wondered about you so many times,

I even had a journal and pen under my bed at nights.

I was waiting for you to show up with your light

To wake me up from my sleep to meet you at last.

I wondered about you with excitment and emotion.

Always ready to ask you… Who are you?

Where do you come from?

What’s your purpose?

I used to close my eyes and daydream about your possibility.

I always knew you was there waiting for me

to discover you hiding in plain sight

into those pages somewhere unwritten.

Making the invible ink visible to my heart first then to my eyes,

Not forcing you, of course, cause’ even fiction characters need their freedom

Not threatening you, of course, you need my respect and love.

Not even getting into despair, no,  I always knew you were there at home.

And then, it just happened..

I saw you just right there standing beside me

With all your colors and your splendor

With all your faces, pains, flaws, and frustrations.

You just arrived fine, and simple,

Making this writer of yours so happy.

I needed you so much in that moment

you was there introducing yourself to me openly.

And I wrote, and I described you.

We had this interview between us, so magical.

I heard your voice, clear and sound.

I felt your essence, alive, so free and with trust.

You made me smile when you  decided to stay,

For the amazing adventure that I just created for you to live in.

But you are waiting to be discovered,

You are there excited for them to meet you as well.

“Readers, readers. please, come here and meet me!”

I heard you say.

“I’am going to take you into this new adventure.

You’ll see…  Me –  your character – and my home – the book – are worthy of you.”

We are “one” now,

and we’ll always be together

inside those pages that were written with love,

into ‘The Composer and The Flycatcher” the heart and the soul.

Please, stay in touch, there is more to come.

Sincerely,

Diana.
