Feeling that no one understands what you are doing
Receiving another rejection letter or
Not receiving any response to your query.
Today I am voting for number 9.
As writers, we need to consider our rejections progress.
Rejections mean, we are trying.
Wannabee writers talk about their great novel or article, but when pressed on where it has been submitted, the answer is vague. Or perhaps they submitted one place months ago and are still waiting for an answer.
If you are serious about your writing, keep doing what I am doing… submitting.
Before sending another query, tighten your work, improve your query letter, ask other writers for suggestions, but as Churchill told theBritish people when they were under attack by the Germans in WWII…..Never, never, never, never, give up. Easier said than done, but it is the only road to publication.
Be thankful you are a Christian writer.
Talk to God about what you want to do. Wait for his advice. Perhaps what you have written is not what God wanted you to write. He is in control.
He did not give us the talent of writing without having a plan for how it could be used to glorify him.
When you receive your next rejection tell yourself, “I am a writer. I just received a rejection!”
Thank God that you are trying.
