It's the first Wednesday of the month, which means hundreds of us will be posting about our insecurities. Add your name to the list to join in!
There are people who love my writing. There are people who don’t.
A few months ago, I received this glowing email from a client: “You are hands-down the best writer (with the quickest turnaround), I've found in over 2 years of outsourcing.”
A week later, I received a nasty critique from a new client who apparently liked everything else she’d ever read but my work. Guess which one made the most lasting impact?
There’s an old saying my husband taught me. (He works in sales.)
Some will love our work. Some won’t. We have to face that. One person’s dislike of our work doesn’t mean anything, even if that person is an editor or agent. Because it’s all a matter of personal taste.
So the next time you get a rejection or scathing review, remember these words: "Some will, some won't, so what?" And go find someone who will.
What are you insecure about this month?
