Today was my 2nd critique group meeting. I thought it went better this time, since this time they agreed my YA novel really was YA. And liked it, for that matter! Someone said something I liked a lot, about submitting to publishers: You can reject me, but you can't stop me.

My absolute favorite quote at the moment, considering my current mid-30s crisis, is by George Eliot: "It is never too late to be what you might have been." (Actually, I think it a lot of cases it is too late--I'll never be a child star, for instance, or an Olympic athlete!--but I'm still clinging to that quote daily!)
