Today, over on The Blood-Red Pencil, I’m blogging about believing in yourself. I’m talking to writers, but it applies to everyone. You have to believe in yourself and what you’re doing. If you experience a set-back, you can take a moment to re-group, then you have to get up and move forward. Don’t beat yourself up. You can’t get out of a hole if you dig a deeper pit.
Writers have a tough time. When an agent, an editor, a critique partner, a reader, or whoever doesn’t like our work or rejects our query, it’s hard not to take it personally. They’re rejecting our very words and thoughts. It feels as though they’re rejecting us.
Have you felt the sting of rejection? What have you done to get over it?
Tell us here, then drop by The Blood-Red Pencil and share your technique(s) to climb out of the pit and start again.
