    Stick with it Dave. Remember they turned Bill Watterson too. If you believe in it you’ll find your way and it’ll all come together. I keep rethinking mine too because I just feel like something is missing but I haven’t found out what yet, but I will. All the best to you Dave!

    will be quietly waiting till your return! When the time is right it’ll happen I know it, I have faith in you (and Charmy’s Army as well). I know it’s a difficult path and you will face MANY Obstacles but as long as you never give up & prove them right you will succeed!! Never give up your dream!!

    I am going to work up a survey that’ll post probably Wednesday. I need to hear from my readers what I am doing wrong or right… or if you all agree I am wasting my time with this silly dream. lolol….. I may just have to send Charmy into the minefield and see what happens!!!!

    I just need a few weeks to soul search. Charmy will be back. I have a Sunday strip that I hope to work up tonight but I kind of lost my motivation the other day after reading my rejection letter.

    @Lady Anne Wehrley

    I plan on it. I will not give up… but I may try a new strip for a while.

    I meant 50,000. My “zero” key was stuck.

    Hey Dave, not just a reader here, also consider myself a fan. Saddly, it won’t be long before I am going through this again.

    Just a few little facts here to hopefully give you a little inspiration or ease some of the frustration:

    One of the many suggestions which Lucille Ball ignored was to get another actor to play her husband. The American audience would never except a Cuban, or any other foreigner to have a lead role.

    Star Wars was turned down by three or four studios before it was accepted.

    Spielberg wanted to use M&Ms to lure out his alien. The people of Mars Candy turned it down. The makers’ of Reece’s peanut butter Cups, saw an opportunity to market there Reece’s Pieces candy they were just about to introduce. While E.T. was in theaters the concessions couldn’t keep a stock of Reece’s Pieces.

    Lee Harper became so frustrated she threw her manuscript out her second story window. This is one story that was almost literally gone with the wind. She was persuaded to and find all the pages and put them back in order. She did, yet more rewrites and To Kill a Monkingbird became a best seller.

    A few years ago Oat was turned down by five syndicates. But I am going to try again.

    You will get there… Rejections suck, but are par for the course…

    Great points!!!

    I know this isn’t going to be an overnight process. This is the second time I was forced to step back and review Charmy.

    Last time, I came out with the new style to my drawings, better ink work, and a stronger sense of direction.

    It just took three weeks.

    I plan on being back in two (and maybe this Sunday), but after I evaluate the strip THIS time, I plan on coming out with tweaks that have every syndicate COMING TO ME….. lolol…..

    Yep… but the rejections make me stronger.
