Well I hope you all enjoyed the guest post yesterday. I have another lined up for next week and another couple in the pipeline including a literary agent, so I hope what they have to say is encouraging and helpful to you all.
I was talking to a writing friend of mine recently about how we deal with rejection, good or bad and how hard it can sometimes be to keep going. I think the guests I’ve invited, including those previously featured, will verify that nothing is achieved without pure determined hard work and a resilience to brush off rejection and keep going. Learn from it and keep moving. Remember to look how far you’ve come. Sometimes when you think you really can’t take any more, you might just be on the brink of a small miracle. They do happen.
But … nothing comes without working at it. It is my firm belief that the ones that make it, that get the publishing deals, snag the agent and who knows might even land themselves and best seller, are there for one reason and one reason only … and it’s not that they attended some fancy writing school or knew the commissioning editor at Bloomsbury (yes that might help) but I think they’re there because they never gave up.
So make sure you keep that dream alive and do whatever it takes to be as good as you can be. Got it?
Happy writing everyone!
