Today I received two rejection letters.
Of course I was disappointed, but I feel really good, too.
One year ago, I had no idea I could be a freelance writer. One year ago, I had never heard of Writer Mama, I had no idea that I could write and submit articles to regional publications, and I didn't even know Military Spouse Magazine even existed.
I have had articles published in over 10 regional publications and have had an essay picked up by a national magazine. I write a monthly column for an international magazine. I have come so far, how can I be discouraged? Receiving rejections means that I am persevering, learning and trying. And for goodness sake, I only work about 12 hours a week!
It is so hard to be rejected. It is so good to be writing.
