Let's face it, this industry is tough. We face rejection, characters who won't fully reveal themselves to us, and plot holes. I say we need a moment to stop and reflect on the positives because they are the things that keep us going. That make us push through the tough times.
It doesn't matter if you haven't been published or haven't gotten a book deal or an agent. Positive things are finishing your first manuscript, revising your manuscript so it's ready to query, sending out that first query letter, etc. There are so many things that we accomplish that we rarely stop to give ourselves credit for.
So, today is all about reflection. What are some positives in your writing career? And don't dismiss something because you think it's small. Even deciding to write your first book or short story is a positive, and I want to hear it. I want to cheer you on.
