It Comes From the Most Unexpected Places

A little tidbit of information before we begin. I use coupons & take full advantage of Walmart's price match guarantee, therefore I am always trying to find the best deal. With that said, I was anxiously flipping through a Menards ad looking for my next deal. Just a quick glance towards the bottom of every page reveals tiny sentences. Upon further reading each & every one of them, I found it amusing. Quotes & words of encouragement, in just the time I need them. 'The surest way not to fail is to determine to succeed.' With the query letter for my novel rearing its ugly head at me, I have become disheartened. This simple quote breathed life back into that firery passion to see my book someday sitting on display at B&N. I don't believe it's coincidence. I wonder how many many of us miss something so small we could easily chalk up to being insignificant? What if we were meant to find such treasures? What if the world we live in has blinded us from make these discoveries? Food for thought.revewere tiny sentences.


  1. That is an awesome quote! We do have to determine to succeed and then be determined!

    Have you joined Agent Query Connect & posted your query in the forum there for help (my apologies if you have as I haven't been on the main boards at AQC for a bit). If not there is a fabulous community of writers there at all stages of the game who are more than willing to help out! Queries are nasty little creatures! Good luck with yours!

  2. Thank you.

    I have and I love it! Everyone is so helpful. I enjoy reading other query letters even though all I can really do is give them a thumbs up. Thank you again.
