The week or so leading up to this week had been a tough one. I had received a particularly disappointing rejection, and I was just overall frustrated with myself. However, this reading helped me to get back on track.
First of all, the readings from Josh and Sarah were awesome. I also got to talk about writing and get some much needed encouragement – thank you Shan-Tay Mercedes Watson!
To be a writer you have to deal with rejection and failure on a daily basis, so it can be hard at times to see that clearly and remember why you write. Sometimes you need others to help you see what you’ve forgotten.
