"Rejection is not an indictment of your work... however, rejection becomes infection when we internalize it, ascribe meaning it doesn’t necessarily have and amplify it by taking on a chronically self-critical inner voice. We become the viral agent of the first blow and extend it through internal self-harassment. If you don’t learn to deal with rejection in a constructive way it has the potential to destroy your writing career. It will make you think you’re no good. It will make you question your worth. It will cause you to give up. It will give you writer’s block. It will seriously compromise the quality of your writing. It can also throw you into fits of anxiety or depression." I thought that this day would be exciting for me...actually holding our own published book in my hand for the 1st time... Here we are, it is launch day, and I am struggling to muster the motivation to get everyone else excited. The writing of this book was many sleepless nights and nightmares. We put so much of ourselves into this book. I don't know what will happen with this book, but I hope at the very least, it will help someone.
