Iâ€™ve dealt with a lot of rejected/dejected writers this week, for one reason and another. Theyâ€™ve been dejected because of the rejections. Itâ€™s completely understandable. Rejection hurts.
It somehow says â€˜Youâ€™re not good enoughâ€™, no matter how confident you are of yourself as a person or as a writer. Sometimes a writerâ€™s week brings more than one rejection, which just feels like the Universe has given you a paper cut and rubbed lemon juice into it.
