Tipsy Tuesday

Writers perhaps hear the word "no" more often--or at least as often--as most 2-year-olds. Whether from editors or agents, friends and family, rejection is as much a part of our job as spellcheck and emails.

It's up to you to turn rejection into fertilizer for your writing. The things that don't work out the first or fifteenth time teach us how to become better at what we do, how to persevere, and to develop a better sense of the quality of our work before we send it out.

Or, at least, it should.
