Ok, enough whining and moping about! I WILL find the agent who loves my book and it WILL get published!

So here's my new theme song! Tubthumping by Chumbawamba

That's right: "I get knocked down, but I get up again. You're never gonna keep me down!"

Ah, much better :)

Feel free to add your own songs to the play list, my friends!


  1. I've gotten so many rejections for different things I've written that I think I will use them to paper my bedroom. "Tubthumping" brings back so many memories...memories of a younger self who didn't get rejected!!!!

  2. Hi,


    I tend toward to opera, any female aria will do! And I'm think F'ck you (the sub editor) that is.


  3. Mine is "I Ain't Down Yet" from The Unsinkable Molly Brown, as sung by Debbie Reynolds. :)
