IWSG

Not quite sure where January went, but here we are again already! And what a difference one month can make.

IWSG - it's purpose is "To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!" Find the website here.

During January I polished my novella, and this month plan to send it out so anxiety levels are increasing. I'm fully expecting lots of rejects, but that doesn't mean that I won't feel pretty useless and unwanted each time it happens. By next month I will probably be a quivering mess!

  1. i understand that fear of rejection thing.....I get terribly sad when no one buys my crafts. Or they come to my table and praise everything, then walk away w/o buying.

    1. I had exactly that happen yesterday JoJo, loads of praise but no buyers, so frustrating! x

  2. It is the worst part of this process, but keep pushing that yes is out there.

    1. Hiya! I need to do that too, but have been so busy. Was planning to put today aside to catch up on blogs - but now have to plan a presentation for an interview tomorrow! Never enough time :) x

  4. Somehow expecting them never really cushions the blow, does it? Good luck!

  5. January DID go by fast. And February is even shorter!!

    I'm querying right now, so I'll be a quivering mess with you.

    1. Good luck - let's hope for cheering together rather than quivering together :) x

  6. Every one you send out is one closer to a yes!
    And if you're a quivering mess in a month, perfect timing for the next IWSG.

  7. Rejection is part of the process. Don't let it give you a case of nerves. All it means is that the best is yet to come :)
