The writing life involves hard work, perseverance, courage, finding ‘le mot juste’ and coping with the risk of failure. Writers can decrease their risk of failure by writing more and providing a steady stream of submissions to editors and publishers.
Those who get published are a special breed. They understand the graceful art of submitting their work and how with every acceptance there might have been 50 or 100 rejections. They understand that if you don’t send out your work you will never be read. Many writers don’t seem to understand this. Those who do not get published sit in their office writing and waiting for the knock on the door, but unfortunately, it rarely happens this way.
Now is the best time to silence your insecurities and forge ahead with your work. Believe in yourself and your writing and send out your work out.
What are you waiting for?
