I MERELY TOOK THE ENERGY IT TAKES
TO POUT AND WROTE SOME BLUES.
I used to get a lot more upset about rejections than I do now. Don't get me wrong - they still sting, and some hurt worse than others - but I'm better able to put them in perspective, to look at my work with a more practiced and objective eye. It could also be that I'm a lot older than I was when I started writing...or I've just numbed myself to the heartache...or I've developed a shell so tough the tortoises would be jealous...
Um, where was I? Oh, yes. Today, let's take that negative energy and turn it into something positive and productive. (And, if that doesn't work, go get some ice cream.)
